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.

I was raised on

I was raised on Cypress Mill Rd. from 1950-1969. During this time the Bounds were living in the house, now known as the Martin, Bounds place. We lived across the road from the Bounds on the

Petty's side of the road. During my childhood

I found a cemetery across the road from the Bounds home. Going down the road pasted their home on the left, slightly starting down the hill on the left about 100 yards into the woods. It was a small cemetery with iron fence around it. I can remember that the dates on the stones dated way back in the years of 1800. The markers were tall marble and granite and one was pink very nice for that time area. I would like to know more about this cemetery and who it belong to if anyone can help.

The hotel was not completely destroyed by fire, but the top 2 floors was taken off and rebuilt with out the top floors.

There were approximately 2000 people living in the town proper, but has dwindled to approximately 300.

A town fire destroyed most of the town, and businesses.

there was 3 side tracks of railrad and one track went west from south of town and north where Pratt Junction rd is now.

Hello, I represent Teen Challenge of Oklahoma. At the former Odd Fellows Home, now called Freedom House Teen Challenge, we offer a 12 month long residential program to help women 18 and over overcome life-controlling issues such as alcohol/drug/sexual abuse, eating disorders & depression.

Teen Challenge is currently renovating Odd Fellows Building and adjacent wings. We anticipate completing this renovation by the end of 2015 or early 2016. When we complete the renovations we plan to hold a Grand Opening Event in which the community, current residents and former residents are welcome to attend. We would love to contact any former residents so that we can keep them up to date on the progress of the renovations and also invite them to the Grand Opening Event. Teen Challenge is a 501-c3 non-profit and we have received many financial donations along with gifts-in-kind towards the renovations. We are taking donations towards these renovations if any one would like to contribute.

If you are a former resident and would like to receive updates and/or an invitation to see the renovated residence please contact me at mattrc32@gmail.com.

Thank you for your time and have a great day!

My father's uncle and aunt (Vernon and Marge Newton) owned this house in the 1950s and 60s when I was a young boy. The attic was (and perhaps still is) one large uninterrupted space. The Second Empire Style provides for window alcoves and as a kid standing in one of those "niches" peering through the old glass, looking to the South on a crisp and clear fall day, I was certain I could see for at least 100 miles. It was (and is) a house easy to love. Even in those days with no paint and drafty windows, I dreamed that someone would come along and save the old place from its long decline. Thankfully, the Bellamy family has made that dream come true. Bravo!

In fact, I was surprised that this very well known theater hadn't been added to Clark County. This is what I'm going to do: The Rylander Theater in Americus, GA/Sumter County hasn't been added, so I'm going to edit this theater and change everything to fit the Rylander so I don't have to add the Rylander and have someone delete this one.

This is my great(x2) grandfather's and grandmother's home. It is now owned by another family and is private property. Obediah lost two sons during the Civil War, another to pneumonia at age 12, and his fourth son to pnuemonia at the age of 30. Obediah died following the deaths of his sons. Their animals and ability to grow crops was gone with the loss of five males in their family within a few years. Parmelia Bullock Winston was unable to pay the taxes and moved near her son, M. Leonard Winston. There is a marker in the front yard, placed in 1933 by Wake Forest students, but unfortunately it is incorrect. It lists all the family members as being buried in unmarked graves near a tree line far behind and to the right of the farm house. Obediah is buried there but his older sons who were killed were more likely buried near where they died in Seven Pines, VA and Richmond Hospital following the Battle in Chancellorsville. My great grandfather, his son Dr. Cornelius Winston moved his family to Winter Haven, FL when land opened up for farm land and orange groves. He and his wife, Annie Lois Ellis Young Winston are buried there, not in Creedmore.

Sadly, this gorgeous building went up in flames in August. What makes it even more sad is the fact that they were finally trying to restore the building when the fire occurred. The news article I cite as a reference states that they will rebuild the historic courthouse, but as of now, do not think that the building was insured for the amount it would take to rebuild.

How about correcting the address unless you are using an original address. Currently it resides on 112th St SW, Lakewood, WA

This is not a through truss bridge; it is a deck truss bridge. The railroad track passed over the bridge, not through it. I hiked to this bridge in about 2010.

This is a duplicate listing

As there is not a proper selection reflecting the move of this landmark to a museum in Washington, DC, I changed the status to "Exists" as it does still exist, just not at this location.

How do you get across it

Posted July 20, 2014, by Lisa Hyde (lcsouthall [at] hotmail [dot] com)

This property is not viewable from the road and the road leading to the house has been gated off. 7/19/2014

This house has deteriorated greatly. It is completely surrounded by overgrowth to the point that it is barely visible any longer. Visited it on 7/19/14.

Locator pins in maps
Posted July 19, 2014, by Bobette

Hello

I'm new to the site and I've noticed many of the pins in the maps of the individual pages are no where near the sites. Is there a way to change these pins?

Thank you

Bobette

This is a duplicate that I somehow created. Needs to be deleted.

This is actually located in York County, SC, not Cherokee County, SC.

I believe we have a new Landmark Hunter coming up in the world. Great job, Matthew!

Yes. The historical marker is gone. I have a picture of the marker that I took just a year and a half ago. The site was right in front of the Radio Shack on Shelbyville Rd in Middletown. I do not understand this mystery of why it was removed. If you have any other information, please respond to this post.
