It was not our intention to offend, the language was downloaded automatically from the National Register of Historic Places some of the listings are old and apparently use antiquated language. I have however edited this entry to use modern verbage.

Please change your website.

It currently reads "..... mentally retarded." This is an old term and now offensive, please change this to something less rude.

Thank you.

I always enjoy reading and learning about the property my parents own and on which I have lived and worked for many years. Although most of the stuff I find is true there is sometimes inaccuracies as well. For any inquiries and the Hemingray Glass Corporation Factory which was sold to Owens-Illinois Glass Corporation and then sold to my Father Dan Martin which he named The Sandi Corporation after my Mother ever since his purchase in the 1980’s which I have lived and worked for many years at this property please email me personally at Dealsgalorejalc@yahoo.com. I would love to revitalize this property even more so than we already have so if your a business and have a need or an idea please contact me or even if your an individual with a need or an idea that would benefit this property and the area of Muncie, Indiana please send me an email and I will reply to all. If you do not receive a reply please be sure to send a follow up email until you do receive a reply as I will reply to all but due to the large amount of unsolicited junk emails and spam emails some could and do get lost on occasion.

Herman Anthony and Minnie Sager are my great great grandparents. His son Earl Clarence Anthony is my great grandfather. He married Julia Leona Kruger and had one child, my grandmother Shirley Irene Anthony. I have visited his farm back in 2000 and was delighted to see that much of it was still standing and a Historian with such fascination and love for the home and for Herman’s story. It was funny because she asked me if “ knew anything about some money Herman buried under the house”? That was news to me? Our family is very proud of our Oregon roots. My grandmother went to be the youngest violinist (age 8) to play in the Portland Oregon Junior Symphony.

Almost 35,000 photos on this website. To say he was a legend is an understatement! It was JR I was always chasing with no real chance of ever catching up. Didn't know him, but I respected him from afar for his obvious love of photography and historic landmarks. Lost 2 great people affiliated with this website recently. No doubt they both will be missed.

Good guy, and an absolute legend on here. Not only for his photography and willingness to drive great distances to tour his landmarks, but also for his excellent essays and eagle eye for landmark news. The world is a much less silly place without him and his penchant for punny humor. Peace, JR.

Built starting the spring of 1937, this site is on the National Register of Historic Places as a District. It was built to train USDA Forest Service foresters from Region 9 of which the Chequamegon-Nicolet still belongs today. The labor for the build came from CCC and other groups that needed help during the depression. They had been on forest since 1933 providing labor for many projects supervised by both the USFS and the Army. Known as the Emergency Conservation Work program, the named formally changed to the Civilian Conservation Corps in 1937. With the name change also came the change to educate enrollees for up to 10 hours each week. Prior to 1937, training occurred at the Forests Virgin Lake Ranger Office or local resorts. In 1938 the first training occurred at this site. Both sides of todays forest were proclaimed individual forests in 1933 and the War in 1942 took most of the forest service and CCC men away to fight and so the forest looked to a group to continue using the campus while everyone was away. Fortuitously Trees For Tomorrow was created in 1944 and was approached to use the campus and obtained the lease in 1946. The USDA Forest Service is still very involved in its management, especially in preserving the Districts Historic Character. It maintained a very visible presence housing the District Ranger on site until 1954. And todays District Office is still in Eagle River. See enclosed 1939 photos of the Dining Hall, Administration Building and one of the Dormitories.

Very sorry and sad to see the condition of Bellevue. I have fond memories of it when I I lived on Congo Farms 1971-1972 in the tenant house (since torn down). I was 19 and my husband and I worked for Jack and Mary Smith. What a beautiful old farm it was then with the bank barn (no longer there) and the beautiful farming acreage. I used to ride my horse back the one thousand acres all the way to the County Line Road. So beautiful.

We did not refer to the house as Bellevue but rather as Congo Farms. It was all magical Congo Farms. Jack and Mary were important, special, interesting and kind people in our lives. I miss them and I miss the dignity and patina of age and grace of the old house which has now become part of some modern farming operation. Looking scalped, unloved, sad. I wish I could move the house to the setting it deserves!

Thanks to Landmark Hunter for the photo and the attention to this grand old place impinged upon by modernity.

It was transferred to DNR 2 years ago. Are they going to return it to its natural state?

I would like to have copies of the postcards posted here. How do I obtain?

For some reason the edit page in LandmarkHunter does not allow a change of county, unlike BridgeHunter, where the county can be changed.

You might have to make a new entry in the correct county and delete the old. Hope this helps.

Posted May 19, 2021, by Daniel Greenwood (420meangreen [at] gmail [dot] com)

This comment is in regards to the photo labeled 5. Childrens' Home Wauwatosa Wis. I was placed in this building in 1970. At that time the right side of the building housed Junior Boys West and the left side housed Senior Boys East. Only the first floor was used as living quarters, with a couple rooms on the second floor used for recreation rooms (pool and ping pong rooms). I was told that the building used to house infants. There was an outdoor enclosed slide that was attached to the back of the building on the third floor that went to the ground level which was used as a fire escape for the infants in case of a fire. We used to climb to the top and slide down it for fun. Also the hill in the back was used for sledding and toboggans in the winter time. The power plant was at the bottom of the hill. The power plant is still there. The grounds also had three or four more cottages that were modern ranch style units. There was also a school which had classrooms as well as a gym, indoor swimming pool, and a roller skating rink. The food was cooked in the administration building (which still stands) and was delivered to the individual cottages. I was in and out of MCCH from 1970-1977 and was quite familiar with the grounds and the staff. There were underground tunnels that led to several buildings. I navigated the tunnels that led to Milwaukee County General Hospital. I'm pretty sure this building was originally the infants hospital, but I'm not sure. After this building was closed down and I was moved to the more modern cottages, I would get weekend passes and sleep in the old building at night because I didn't have a place to stay. While there we explored the building and in the basement there was a lot of old medical equipment. I have been trying to find out the origins of the building and it has been difficult. If anyone knows it's orgin please post the information. Just a note about changing times. When I turned 12 years old my mother signed a consent form so I could smoke cigarettes, so I was allowed to smokes 8 cigarettes a day. The staff would hold our cigarettes in lockers and pass them out to us at various time throughout the day. The funny thing is that I was placed there because my mother was deemed an unsuitable parent. Then they let a 12 year old smoke.

My great, great grandfather, A.C. Beeson, was general superintendent for United Pipe Line and supervised the first pipe line laid in the US (OH to PA). A.C. stayed at this house on one of his travels and left his Limoges shaving mug behind. It was found in a trash heap behind the house (that had been covered in overgrowth). The Forest Co Historical Society tracked me down and I just received the mug in today's mail.

My dad had those for years. That was my first apt in like 99-2001 I think. The walls were insulated with rolls of 1920s news papers nailed to slats. It Did NOT work.

This building was not completely demolished. Much of the façade remains, and a painted brick "Fowler Bros." sign was reassembled in the lobby of the lofts. See https://belkhudsonlofts.com/about/

Click on the link under Sources that says National Register Database. There you will find the original application to the National Park Service to include the property on the NRHP. You'll find it to probably have far more information than you really wanted.

A little more information about this old tevern would be of great interest. I don't see what year it was built only years of significance starting in 1810. Who built the tavern? Of course for me the name Morris makes it of interest. Also, is there any pictures of the interior and does anything of the original tavern still exist inside? For instance, another tavern built in Bedford County, the tavern still exists inside of the Defibaugh tavern.

Location and photo shown are incorrect. Confusion appears to arise from the bridge name, as it is located on nearby Brugler Road, not Warrington Road. Refer to attached photo and NJDOT Historic Data sheet.

Maybe Wikipedia will pick up on this and correct their article

We really don't have any genealogy resources on this site so the short answer is that we probably can't help you out.

You might try some of the genealogy sites to begin your search, such as https://www.usa.gov/genealogy or https://www.myheritage.com/page/free-genealogy-websites

I hope you can find what you are looking for.

Hi

This is an odd question that you may not be able to answer. But my grandmother apparently taught at one of the small schools in the Bridger area in the 1920's -1930's. Her name was Montana Hodges and after she married her name was Montana Gilbert (her nick name was Monny)

Any chance that you can confirm she taught at one of these schools?

My grandma and her siblings were there somewhere between 1930 to 1940 ish. I have been trying to find out about her mother. I have been told her mother passed away and that is why the children have been given to the county home. Please if anyone can help with information it will be great to hear. My grandmas name was Shirley Gallagher and she had 6 siblings all older then her except for her baby sister.

Doug, if you look at the page under "Sources" you'll find a link to the original application to include the complex on the National Register of Historic Places. "National Register database" is the link to the National Archives. The document is comprehensive and very thorough - in other words, there is a lot to wade through but I think it will answer most of your questions.

Does anyone know about the Children's Home School building? I believe it was just West of the administration building. I lived in one of the four "cottages", mostly in Boys 1 in about 1979-81. I always wondered what those cottage buildings were originally intended for. I assumed they were Tuberculosis residence buildings but they may have been outbuildings from the agricultural college. They weren't very fancy but I am sure they didn't build them just for us. Also, when I lived in the Children's Home, I remember a big hospital that was white with tall narrow windows, behind it just to the North. Kids told me it was an abandoned insane asylum and that it was haunted. I guess you could see the electric shock rooms and they had a barber chair you could sit in. They tore it down before I could never see it. Now the whole Children's Home is gone except for the admin building.

Fort Obrien on Port Rd. in nearbye Machiasport is a state historical area open to the public. Has civil war cannon, parking and open area, earthwork fortifications remain visibe..view of Machias Bay site of the Battle of the Margaretta, first naval battle of REV. Much more interesting.

BethesdaNaval Hospital is known for receiving thousands of Marines who were wounded during the Vietnam War.

It is the place where President John F. Kennedy’s body was taken for autopsy after he was assassinated on Nov 22, 1963.

It is also the place where Secretary James Forrestal jumped to his death in 1948.

My parents were good friends with a member of the Dawson family and we lived there on the property through the summer of 1976. I remember there was an illegal alcohol still hidden upstairs in the house, and I used to play in the mud-filled basement and the creek out back (I was around 8 years old). I also remember there being both a family cemetery plot with crypts and headstones, as well as a slave graveyard with small markers over to the side. There was also a separate kitchen building that looks like it's long gone.

Mill Dam on Manatawny Creek
Posted March 11, 2021, by John F Dengler (Jdengler47 [at] comcast [dot] net)

In the 1960s there was a mill dam in Earlville across the Manatawny Creek at where Trout Run enters the creek.Where Manatawny and Longview Rd. meet. The dam allowed swimming, boating, docks etc. above the dam before the flood of 1972 washed it away. Does anyone know the name of the mill or dam?

Posted March 10, 2021, by Janie Cook (janiecook10 [at] gmail [dot] com)

hello. I have some wonderful pictures of the Lick Log mill store. That i took many years ago. Probably from the middle 1990's. It was a very quint store back then. I was thinking maybe the owners or the city would like to have them.

We've been by the store many times this past year. Its a shame its just sitting there rotting. Maybe these pictures might spark the city/county to clean it up to make a beautiful landmark indeed.

Thank you

The Robert Vinton Beall House is at 1252 Beall Lane in Central Point and not 1253 Beall Lane.

There is nothing but open field at 1253 according to Google Maps.

My mother's family (Carters) lived in Tyrone/Woodford. Do you know the name of the Carter Family that owned this farm?

Posted March 1, 2021, by Kathleen Colquhoun Halm (kathleenhalm3 [at] gmail [dot] com)

This is inaccurate. The older part of the house dates from the 1790s. The portion with the porch and columns dates from the 1850s. The house was originally built by Robert Huston, first justice of the peace of Lincoln County. That part of the hosue extends from the front, with the smaller entrance, along the side to the second lilac bush. (The section after that my father added in the 1980s.) The Greek Revival section was added on (after part of the original house had been removed) by his descendant Gilmore Huston in the 1850s. The house has two styles from two time periods and is older than this post states. My family has owned this house since 1965 and I live there for much of the year and have for many years.

This is called Fishing Creek, or Nitrolee Dam, but is not the same as the Great Falls-Dearborn Dam. Great Falls-Dearborn is 3 miles downstream, closer to Great Falls.

Error due to a typo when I added the landmark. Accidentally typed 1950 instead of 1850! Thanks for bringing to our attention and it has now been corrected.

Hi, My family moved to Texola in 1906. My mother was born there. My sister and I were born there. And my grandparents lived there until 1971. I am kin to most of the people in the cemetery located south of town. The building that you have pictured was not the Longhorn Trading Post. It was a Texaco Filling Station and a little stop and go grocery store that was owned by my aunt and uncle. I've spent many hours sitting on the ice chest, looking at the magazines, and talking to my family as people came and went. The little turquoise building on the south side of the old Route 66 was the church of Christ. Across the street with the roof caved in was the Methodist Church. I'm 74+ and my plot is located in the Texola Cemetery to be filled at some later date. Have a great day!!! Toodles,

Jo
