The former Jackson Hotel has been renovated and is open for business. The lower level houses local businesses, and the 2 upper floors contain studio apartments for adults.
Oops - I got it mixed up. I've now moved the Duquesne photos to where they belong. Thanks for pointing it out.
My Grandmother taught at the old Schlatitz school in the 1920's. I wonder if it is still a building if someone could take a picture of it for me. Thanks
Definitely the wrong building.
This house was moved actually. The owners are reconstructing it on a plot of land about one mile away. Their progress is detailed at onedollarcottage.com/category/my-house. So not a total demolition!
I do not find the surname Chabala on the list of men who were killed in Lidice. If the entire family was killed I am wondering if perhaps they were a part of the resistance movement? Entire families were rounded up and executed if they were suspected of underground activity, especially after the Heydrich assassination. At that time, two turn-coats gave information to the Gestapo naming resistance members and almost 400 people were executed. If they were involved in that way, their names may be listed on one of two bronze plaques posted near the church of Saints Cyril and Methodius in Prague. There, the 2 parachutist assassins were trapped in the crypt and met their deaths along with 5 others from different secret missions. The plaques and recognition of resistance members was not forthcoming until after the fall of Communism. None of the missions would have been successful without the help of those brave patriots. Perhaps you may find information through the Military History Institute in Prague. Genealogy orgs. may also be helpful. I do hope you find your answers. Toni
I have withdrawn my essay and replaced it with an essay written by Toni Brendel. There's also a new photograph of the Lidice Memorial, taken by Bill Ball last month, that shows the restored memorial.
Many thanks for Toni and Bill for their contributions and help in not only improving this listing, but also for telling the story of Lidice.
I THAUGHT THAT THE FAMILY OF JOHN CHABALA WAS SLAUGHTERED IN THE TOWN OF LIDICE & HIS NAME APPEARED ON THE ONES THAT
WE'RE SLAUGHTERED. PLEASE CAN YOU LET ME KNOW BECAUSE QUITE A FEW PEOPLE SEEN THE PROGRAM ABOUT LUDICE & SAID THAT THE NAME WAS ON THE MEMORIAL
THANKS, JOHN D. CHABALA
I don't mean to be unkind, but this version of the Lidice tragedy is riddled with inaccuracies. Mr. Manning, will you please contact me? Thank you.

Really ticked me off when I saw this. Luckily, I went there to photograph this home and a few other historic locations that day or I would have missed it entirely.
Gosh, Andy, you must have had that snowstorm the weekend I closed the barbershop and took Aunt Bee to that sleazy motel in Mount Pilot.
The four pictures posted by Jim Allen are not of the Monongehela Incline, but are in fact of the Duquense Incline, which is located closer to The Point.
Thank you - it was fun to shoot, too! There was a pro there, with an entourage, shooting a young lady here and there. The lady in the hydraulic bucket is the owner of the building she was painting. I'm eager to get back and see what it looks like now.
Great photos JR. I was there this summer. It's a very neat town.
The area next to Eadsville is private property as well so it is extremely difficult to access the area
Thank you for including this house in your review. I can clarify the architectural description. It is a gothic revival cottage with Eastlake influences. Its core building is an 1859 ranch cottage (1 and 1/2 storey) with a 1871 addition across the front and addition of a kitchen off the back. A garage was attached to that in 1999.
The tank was leaning towards the street and was removed about 10-12 years ago for safety reasons, the base remains.
Clay, please contact me in reference to the springhouse.
I'm trying to find more information on this school. The name plate had fallen off and any information on it would be great.
Close enough for government work.
Remember, the initial listings for this site came from the National Register of Historic Places, administered by the fed'ral gummint. Correct location on a map? Good luck.
This site appears to have it in an entirely different location. Occasionally the mapping on here is "close enough".
I can't find any info online about its demolition, but a clear satellite view shows there is little left but the foundation of a building. I did a conversion of the UTM coordinates to lat/long to verify the location.
You might try the Fond du Lac Historical Society.
Demolished late 2005 or early 2006 by Chesapeake. Was home to the Junior League at that time.
I'm trying to find when Gene Autry stayed at the Hotel Retlaw and why. Can anyone help?
The house was moved ca 2008 to a site on the north side of NW 23rd St just west of Westminster in Nicoma Park.
There's another one still in service in Mayberry-On-The-Mohawk. I have Barney hide behind the buildings so all us small-town folk can generate some revenue when you big city boys blast through there without ever thinking to look for a signal in the middle of the town square.
I have family with the last names of Kennedy and they are not registered in the index. Is there any way possible to get them registered. Please get in contact with me as soon as possible. Thank you.
In 1899, H. Fadler & Son were the Proprietor's of the Arcade Hotel of West Alexandria, Ohio. Is this the same structure that is also known as The Lange Hotel that now appears on the National Register of Historic places ?
This building currently houses a bar known as the Sandwich Shop. It has been this since the 80's and is the oldest running bar in Blount Co. to my knowledge. Before becoming a bar, it was actually a sandwich shop.
The address for this house has recently been changed to number 64. This link from the NPS that shows the change http://www.nps.gov/history/nr/feature/places/AD_85003304.htm
This home is going to be moved and saved. Here is a link to the Facebook page tracking its progress: https://www.facebook.com/LutherBrewerHouse
Martha, according to the 1992 National Bridge Inventory, there was a 29' wooden stringer that crossed Ray Branch, carrying a county road numbered 05010, about 400' south of KY 80. The Kentucky inventory number of that bridge is 042*5102*C0231 and if this is the one you're looking for, you could contact the Kentucky DOT and see if they have any info about it.
The newest NBI describes a bridge at the same location but identifies it as carrying Dave Miller Road, so I suspect that's the one. This bridge was built in 2004 and is 67' long.
That's all I can find.
For many years I have been trying to locate information on an old wooden bridge in Graves County Kentucky that has now been replaced. This bridge is not anything special except to those who grew up around it and played under it as my children did. It was/is located on Dave Miller Road and Ray Branch runs under it. I want to know the year it was built and possibly the names of those who built it. Also any information on the Dave Miller Road would be invaluable to me as well.

We bought this home in 1988. Fell in LOVE with it the moment I seen it. After we bought it, we found out it was built in 1910 and had a wonderful history. With lots research we, placed this home on the historic registry back in 1988. We did as much work to it as we could and as we could afford to. We lived there almost 11 wonderful years and raised my children there. When we sold it, the person who bought it was planning to fix it up and bring it back to it beautiful glory, at least that was my understanding. I have not seen the house since I moved in 2002. I took trip to visit my family and took a drive by the home to see it. I WAS DEVISTATED at what I saw! I cried as I walked around this home and could not believe how it had been vandalized inside and out! I was not able to go in since I do not own it, but looked from outside thought it's dirty and broken windows. My curtains I had made for it are still hanging, dirty and torn. Several of the original windows are now broken which were all intact when we sold it. I walked around it and took pictures of it as I cried. I have lost or misplaced the pictures of it due to a divorce and moving to CA. Here are pictures of what I seen while visiting. I have no desire to live in it again, but if I had unlimited funds, I would buy it back and bring it back to it's original glory as I could! I have wonderful memories while living in this home and nothing can take that away. I just hate seeing it rotting to the ground....
I have visited the area many times to explore around in both early spring and late fall before the snows. Hope that this helps.
FYI it's officially known as "The BUNYON'S Statue." "Tall Paul" is simply an affectionate nickname. We just visited him in Atlanta Illinois. "The BUNYON'S Statue" is not an "aka" but "Tall Paul" certainly could be. You got it backwards in your referenced titled article.
This is very similar to a traffic signal I saw in Toledo, Iowa. Whoever thought something like this would still be in service?
I have a box that has the wire repair kit for a paper machine at Ecusta Paper Company in Pisgah Forest, NC in the years between 1940's-50's. Would it be of historical value?
Wasn't this the original plantation belonging to Col. William Stevens? If so, this is much more significant than your historical translation!
This house has burned down and nothing remains. I went here to see it because it belonged to one of my great grandfathers Enoch. If anyone has any information or pictures email me at email@example.com
This property has been removed from the National Register of Historic Places.

This building is in danger of demolition. The Lorain City Council is pushing for demolition due to repairs that have not been made. It has been vacant for many years now and has fallen into disrepair. http://www.morningjournal.com/articles/2013/07/14/news/doc51e368cf85e07292767915.txt
I lived at this house from 1972 to 1983 and my whole family definitely experience haunting experiences. It was definitely a very interesting childhood living there.
This house belonged to my ancestors and IT IS FALLING DOWN AND NOT BEING MAINTAINED by the current owners......can anything be done to prevent it from falling down? In a few more years (maybe not that long) it will be beyond repair. It is over 200 years old.....a landmark
It is sad that just sits there. I've been trying to find records on who owns the property. i would love to see if they are willing to sell it.. or at the very least rent it out... i think this place could be beautiful in the right hands, with A LOT of TLC.. I have a ton of ideas for this building..
Regarding address..this house was the house my grandparents lived in. Always thought Maple was and Avenue, not a street.
I've always been a t-ball kinda guy.
Now that you mention it, baseball would be a lot less interesting without mounds 60'6" away from home.
Where would we be if our ancestors had shied away from mound-founding? Gotta start somewhere.
I didn't want to be the start of a third mound.
Disappointed in you. Circulatory systems are hugely over-rated.
There is a news conference set for next Friday (June 28) to announce the findings as to whether the Norfolk & Western #611 can run again. The feeling is that the announcement will be that, yes, she can run again, but now we need to raise some money to make that happen.
I am enclosing a photo I took of Clear Fork Methodist Church.
I am enclosing a photo I took of Clear Fork Methodist Church. My husband and I, like to explore counties and townships around our home in New Albany, I have a website called www,misterbanditravel.net that has all my pictures, along with explanations of the places we've been, An y information you can offer about about Clear Folrk or Franklin Township would be greatly appreciated.
The McCartney isn't on State Line. It is at the corner of Main and Front on the Texas side (Between the Bi-state and Union Station / Bowie County Corrections Center more or less). I don't think it ever actually fronted State Line. I don't believe State Line crossed Broad even before the Bi-State Justice Center was built in the mid-eighties. The Grim Hotel (also still standing and derelict) is at the corner of State Line and Third.
Certainly, please look at my collection here http://bridgehunter.com/pa/huntingdon/bh46346/
Tell me what you like/need in an email and we can go from there. Thank you!
Anyone selling pic of Shade gap pa covered bridge.?Thank you, Ella
The photos on this page for the Neif house are not correct. This is not the house located at 1410 Pecan Street in Texarkana, Arkansas. I purchased the Charles Neif house in 2008. I would be happy to supply you with photos if you would like to depict the correct house.
Just sad. Such a unique structure.
Andrew, do you know much about the Mothman Prophecies and the collapse of the Silver Bridge? Perhaps you could enlighten us.
There's another one in Ames, Iowa, on the opposite side of Lincoln Way from the Maple-Willow-Larch dorm complex, right next to the bus stop.
It can be observed in this image: http://www.flickr.com/photos/iowahighways/5830721264/
My grandparents gave birth to my uncle in Davidson, Maine in 1910. I've never been able to find it on maps of Maine.
Tonight, I decided to google it and there was an arrow pointing to a place where there seems to be nothing. Does anyone know anything about the place called Davidson?
map pin is wrong. it is north ocoee street

I enjoyed very much my return visit to your now-fully-restored home. Since I first saw it, I have looked upon it as an amazing place. It is like a piece of theater. The outside is pleasantly typical, but once standing within the wide porch, one is struck by the extraordinary woodwork surrounding the front door.
Stepping inside, one can only gasp. The entry hall, with its wide elliptical arch and carefully restored grained doors, not only matches the fine craftsmanship around the door, it is fully comparable to what one sees in the great mansions of 18th-century Virginia.
This is only the start of the story–and, yes, your house is a story-teller. Opening the panel that you so cleverly concealed in the hallway one sees that the fine woodwork came only in the house’s second generation. It had been smaller, a bit simpler. Its original wainscot and doorpost, perhaps dating from the mid-1700s, came to be concealed in new walls added in about 1800. Then, to the right, the parlor was trimmed elegantly in the Greek Revival style of, perhaps, the 1830s. Outside the porch, bay window, and Gothic Revival front gable came still later.
For generations, this house has grown with its generations. Each has treasured it while adding the best of their own time. Together they have made it a veritable museum of architectural styles. Your loving care has continued the tradition in the finest possible way.
Best wishes, and thank you again for your hospitality.

Nice find. There's a couple in Linn County, one in front of the Abbe Creek School Museum, and the other is on Johnson Avenue NE in Cedar Rapids. Ill upload the one from Johnson Ave. Very unique and interesting pieces of history. Dave
Great find, Andrew. I think this site should be added to the Effigy Mounds category as it seems to meet the qualifications for inclusion.
Great find, Andrew. I wonder if this site should be added to the Effigy Mounds category?
This landmark was demolished in 2003-04 (see the State of Oregon's historic inventory form: (http://heritagedata.prd.state.or.us/historic/index.cfm?do=v.dsp_siteSummary&resultDisplay=45776)
You can see an aerial view of the former location here (http://goo.gl/maps/q74xp)
The stone house is built of cherty limestone.
My family lived in the Cobbs Estate in late 1958 to early 1959. Don't know how we ended up living there. Does anyone know who owned the house during those years?
I love the bridge!!!!!!!! My family and i have been walking across the bridge since I was in a stroller. Now I am 15. The bridge has much historical value as well as sentimental value to me. i truly love that bridge very very much!
Found info on this interesting old breached dam in Macomb County Michigan if someone wishes to create a page for it.
I'd do it myself, but my Bridgehunter login doesn't seem to work here. I'll have to register here.
Looks like it could use a coat of paint. I'd suggest Aura® in Ghostly Gray with Spectre Spruce trim.
I'm the current owner of the home, which we are running as a Bed and Breakfast. You can view images of the home at www.parkerbnb.com
Yes, I lived there for a few years in the 90's and as far as I know my ex, who owns it still resides there
Irad Meinert was the brother of my great grandfather Garrett Meinert. Irad came from a family of six children, three of whom were deaf mutes. Irad left the farm in Wisconsin when very young and went out to Idaho where his half brothers and half sisters had relocated. He served as an Indian scout and also was an astute miner. He learned carpentry from his father Christopher as did my great grandfather, who was a deaf mute.
The high school ceased operation in 1964, but the school operated as an elementary school for about 20 more years. The post office closed in 1956, the Sumner Garage, the last business, closed in the early 1970's, and the First Christian Church closed in 1969. The Sumner Baptist Church is very active and community has a volunter fire department.
has there ever been a fire at edenhall mccormic south carolina? or any deaths? I have heard stories about a small boy with acandle in the road and had been seen in the windows but I wasunable to find any history about it. Can you help with some information?
This station is NOT abandoned; it's just private property. My father owns it, and lives across from it.
