Dear Sir I can confirm that Mr. Chabala did not live in Lidice, I have been researching the story of the village for the past 16 years. I have been to Lidice many times and have met many of the survivors that still live in the village.

Each year I get a personal invite to attend the memorial in Lidice.

If you want to contact me with any question you may have I will be pleased to answer them

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.

The oldest Man made structure left Standing and the last living breathing structure from the 19th Century. The oldest and largest house in Tallulah falls. Now belongs to me. The New Mayor of Tallulah Falls. Dan A Hayes. I bought the house in a bankrupt foreclosure sale. December 16th 2013. Two years and much work later we have it in some what better shape than we found it. Restoring a landmark Iconic

Building that has stood for 138 years is no small task.

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.

My grandfather Otho (Babe) Clarence Smith, owned this farm in the 1950-1960s when I was a child, he had raised strawberries and took them by truck loads to the railroad station in Marion Station. Dr. Washburn worked at the Smithsonian and was a friend of my father, when my grandfather passed, Dr. Washburn bought the farm. I remember a secret passageway that is behind the fireplace in the kitchen with a tunnel that led to the creek.

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.

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

Hi John,

My mother and her partner owned this property from 1975 - 1985. (Patricia Brownell and Ruth Levasseur) They did an excellent job of refurbishing it and converting it into a thriving assisted living business known as The Victorian Manor. Sunday lunch was open to the public. Governor Joe Brennan and Senator George Mitchell dined with us on one occasion. Big news for this small town.

The property was sold in 1985 in pristine condition. We should have held onto it. The property was neglected and the business died.

It needs another owner with vision.

Photo #6 has an interesting history of its own. Built sometime around 1894, it was the home of Thomas Walsh and his family. Walsh became a millionaire in 1902 when he sold his Camp Bird Mine near Ouray for $5,200,000. They then moved to Washington, D.C. His daughter, Evalyn Walsh McLean wrote the book "Father Struck It Rich" telling of the family who wanted for nothing. Mrs. McLean was the last private owner of the famous Hope Diamond, said to be cursed to those who owned it.

We could have had a wonderful World War 1 Museum at Fort Williams but rip it down rip it down rip it down, it's the American way just like our lovely Union Station in Portland where as a little girl we went to pick up Nana coming from Derry NH. So yup, Americans don't care about history.

Went here many times as a kid, one of those times actually visiting the caves themselves. Nowadays a few of the caves are closed indefinitely due to the threat of a rare bat disease called white nose syndrome. Only 5 caves (the commercial Cascade Cave and X-Cave, and the "wild" Laurel Cave, Horn Hollow Caves and Rimstone Cave) are currently open to the public. Additionally, Laurel Cave is only open during the summer months.

The caves currently closed off include the Saltpeter Cave and the Bat Cave.

I've been up to the top of the Watchtower. It does have a small fee but almost everything within the Grand Canyon National Park does. You do get a very nice aerial view of the canyon at the top of the tower, though as a kid going up it was a bit scary. It has a spiral staircase and you could easily fall off of it if you're not careful. It's worth a visit though if you don't suffer from acrophobia.

I grew up on that farm. Played in that barn many times.

Yes the barn is gone. Such a shame.

Who in Cornwell Church would know the names of the teachers at the One Room School, next door, during the period of 1936-1942. I am doing a story of this time frame that will be published later this year.

That is the Masonic Building in McGregor, Iowa. It is not the Diamond Jo Building, which is located behind Triangle Park on A Street.

I see this house is listed as demolished. It has not been demolished. It is still present along with its "barn" which was converted into apartments.

Looking for information on the gasholder house that was located in Pittsfield, Mass. I shot the attached photo in September of 1983. Was this building torn down? When was it built? Where was it; East Street perhaps?

I grew up in that house and worked in the station built by my father. Sadly, as of yesterday, both have been torn down,

Correction...Ellis Hoffpauir "purchased" the home in 1905. We are the current owners and have documentation that prior to 1905 the house had been sold two previous times.

The Chesterfield and Lancaster RR and the Cheraw and Chester RR are totally unrelated lines, built by two different groups, at two different times. The C&C was to connect the two cities [1872] of Chester and Cheraw but stopped at Lancaster. The standard gauge C&L was built in 1907 with intentions of reaching Lancaster, but not to the C&C/later Lancaster & Chester, which was narrow [3'] gauge. The C&L was built by and for Capt. Dolly Page primarily as a lumber outlet to Cheraw.
