This is a very strange placename in the fact that every single online source I've been able to find online refers to this placename being located in Lawrence County, KY, but all online maps place it in pretty much the exact same place in Bourbon County, KY.

I have no idea where the real location for this placename is.

This should be in Jennings County, not Hamilton County.

I see a lot of these and wish there was a way for the every day user to change the counties.

Posted July 12, 2016, by Anonymous

Apparently, several hundred miles across the state is "close enough." In a couple of cases, I found a township and city with the same name. Different counties, but not only the same municipality name, the town and city had the same street names where the landmark was located. I suspect the computerized placement got confused and placed the landmark in the city instead of the township.

Some typos are funnier than others. I think you meant a "carriage house", not a "carnage house."

Posted July 7, 2016, by Bill Eichelberger

I've seen that a lot with the National Register entries. It's like they just say "Eh, close enough," and poke the map where it's convenient.

Odd. I have it in both counties. I'll find another landmark to replace it with.

The former Midway school has been restored and sits next to the Harbor History museum in downtown Gig Harbor. The picture you have here, taken in 2011,is the residence next door to the Midway School in Midway on 38th St. This picture was the home to the Doyle family until recently. The school sat to the west of it.

My uncle was a drummer in the band - Everett H. "Buzz" Neill, Jr. He had been married only a few years. His wife Paula decided to come to the Club at the last minute and watch him play. I was 10 years old and we lived about 5-6 hours away. My dad hopped in the car right after they heard what happened and drove to KY. I have a photo of my aunt and uncle that I look at almost every day. It's displayed in my house among other photos of the people who matter to me. I'll never forget them.

Thanks for posting the photos. The lot that the bank stands on is where my great grandfather, John S. Smith, staked his claim on 16 Sep 1893. The lot was contested by five other individuals, but he was awarded the lot in Jan 1895.

"John Smith received word Tuesday from the townsite board at Perry, that the decision of that board was in his favor for one of the most valuable business corners in that town. The lot is worth $3,000. John is feeling jubilant over his success." -Tecumseh Herald, 19 Jan 1895

"Jas. [John] S. Smith, of the Smith Bros. grocery firm, was awarded lot 27 in block 24, by the local townsite board yesterday. This is one of the most valuable lots in the city. It is the one known as the "Pabst brewery" lot, and is located at the corner of Sixth and C. Mr. Smith is to be congratulated in winning this important case." -Perry Daily Times, 16 Jan 1895

Hello everybody :

I am writing the history of the emigration from Cerignale, now province of Piacenza and until 1928 province of Pavia, Italy.

I am trying to find out whether Caterina Castelli who died in 1902 was from Cerignale.

I have also noticed that some gravestones with the inscription and surname Castelli and / or Cerignale are also there.

In addition, I am interested in finding out the town names of the miners which many times are not shown on passenger lists.

My idea is to have a memorial that would honor them all here in Italy.

Thank you Ernesto R Milani

Hello,

The house you are displaying is not the Romanzo Kingman house but rather the rectory for the Catholic Church behind it.

Unfortunately, the Romanzo Kingman house burned down many years ago and stood on the foundation that is next to the house you display. It is the area that has grass and brush grown up.

I was wondering if you would be able to pull up any pictures of the Wabash train station that was in Harvey, Ia. I have reason to believe my husband and I may have purchased a building that could be the old station. We've been told it's a historic building and we are currently restoring it for a family home. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Also, there were at one time three railroad lines that ran through Harvey. The Wabash, the Burlington,(CB&Q) and the Rock Island. The CB&Q depot was moved for a Mr.Durham's use back in the day and the Rock Island was burnt down. This leaves the Wabash, where was it, and what happened to it? Thank you for your time.

The tradegedy that occurred last summer was horrible, but contrary to what some people would like the public to believe, the dispute was not over rent. At least it wasn't over unpaid rent. It started with the refusal to accept a check that had "for rent" written in the memo line and requesting rent in cash only. The owners were running an illegal boarding house.

My great aunt, Mary Nichols, and her husband, Rob Nichols owned and lived at Three Otters in the early part of the 20th century until about 1942. My 93 year old mother spent the summer of 1941 there with her parents. She thinks the Nichols family sold the house to two women in about 1942, because they could no longer afford its upkeep. She thinks J. Robert Nichols inherited it through his family. It had been a large farm, but none of the 20th century Nichols family members were really farmers so they had sold off most of the acreage. She said that despite the fact there was a fireplace in every room, the house was very hard to keep warm, so the Nichols family moved into Bedford to "The Pines" during winters.

The Railroad Depot that you see here was built in 1922.After the Christmas fire of 1921 burned the original depot was lost when most of the whole

town of Tallulah Falls burnt. From the depot all the way thru town, hotels,houses every structure burnt except the Cliff House hotel Which Belonged to the Moss family and the Moss House.Everything including the 1200.foot trestle that crossed the top of the whole town and the lake. Total loss. The Railroad Depot that stands today was rebuilt by Rufus Lafayette Moss Jr. Rufus Sr. his father died in October 1912. So Rufus Jr.

Took on the task of the rebuild. Later in the 1930,s the Moss Family Cliff House Hotel was lost to a kitchen fire.

The Moss family had no insurance on it. So the cliff house was never rebuilt and with it went the last grand old hotel. So the Grand Hotel Era of The city had come to a end. Very sad indeed. But today stands one of the last structures of The Railroad Colonel Rufus Lafayette Moss Sr. Built.The Tallulah Falls Railroad Depot. One of two last standing Structures Of the Moss Era. The Moss House where the family lived right next door to there Depot. Which they owned and built both.

while working on the house we discovered many hidden secrets about this grand old lady. It is amazing how Colonel Rufus Lafayette Moss Sr. had done many upgrades to what was his second home, What he called His summer home.

He even named it. (Pine Terrace). If you google the Colonel. You will find some interesting reads about all and to the extent he went in to the house and the town.Colonel Rufus Lafayette Moss Sr. Was Tallulah Falls,The railroad and the gorge. He either owned it all are built it all.

I would like to know if the owner of the Irvin-Patchin

House has done anything to the property since they ruined

it. When I first saw it a few years ago I was just sick.

My family visited my Great Aunt Della and Uncle John Patchin

when I was growing up. My grandmother Rose Etta Neff McKee was Della's sister

We used to sit on the front porch and drink tea. Inside

it had a grand staircase. Could anyone tell me who owns it?

thank you

DOOMED!

The building is in the way of an exit ramp for the new (and badly needed) replacement for the twin bridges that carry I-74 across the Mississippi River.

According to the Quad Cities "Times" efforts to move the historic depot have failed. "Local preservationists currently are on the losing end of a battle over the fate of the historic train depot that is just east of the bridge on River Drive. The Illinois DOT's current plan is to collect demolition bids in the spring and tear down the depot next summer."

In addition, the iconic twin bridges (shown below) are also doomed.

The Stickney house was designed by Newark, New Jersey architect William Halsey Wood. The source for an attribution to "Ward" may have been newspaper coverage of the construction that misheard or misread Wood's name.

This is not in Barbour County. This is in Spencer, which is in Roane County.

On a recent stop (October 2015) at the Mid Continent Railway Museum, I inquired about the progress of the restoration project. The locomotive is currently off site for machining.

The original tender, was beyond hope. A new tender was constructed on the original chassis, which is currently on display.

Historic vs. Historical
Posted October 18, 2015, by J.R. Manning

These are two terms that get thrown around here rather loosely, often used interchangeably. I'm probably guilty of it, too. The terms have considerably different meanings.

On Facebook today, a user who posts under the name "Captain Grammar Pants" wrote a brief essay about the two terms. Since she said it better than I can, I'm going to quote her directly:

"Confusion characterizes the words historic/historical. HISTORIC means that something was important in history; e.g., the one perfectly written student essay from 1992. HISTORICAL refers to something that was generically a part of the past; e.g., all the rest of the essays from 1992."

Which means that some of us around here are historical, but we're probably not historic.

Landmarks on the NRHP are considered to be historic, while other important landmarks we add here might only be historical.

I stand corrected and shall endeavor to be more careful in the future.

Derrick,

Saw your note, thank you. Coincidentally I visited the Moody Mansion in mid-September. Something of a shock in terms of how much the building has deteriorated - sad. An extreme shock to learn that three weeks prior to that date, the husband of the couple that owned it had been stabbed by a tenant in a dispute over rent. Death ruled a homicide but no charges as the claim was self-defense. The only witness was tenant's girlfriend. Age of owner only 53, he had been a building contractor based in Massachusetts. Too bad for the house, he apparently had plans to continue repairs and at least some knowledge of how to do it. The surviving wife plans to try to sell. I doubt that a "savior" will appear with the energy, the will, the means or the personal ability to restore what had been an attractive structure and interior. I noted that the back part of the first floor had been modified beyond recognition - very unattractive.

The entire area is even more economically depressed than when I last had been a resident there (1961). It would not surprise me if the building is ultimately destroyed by decay or fire.

Assisted living would have been a good use provided that there were an appropriately sized leach field. I understand that the expense was prohibitive. Unfortunate.

Best regards,

John "Jake" Gordon
