I hope that I am wrong! I heard from my family (My Grandmother was a Bird) that the Bird's nest had burned many years ago. I would like to know!

Is the Octagonal Mule barn still in existence?

Thank you from Houston, TX

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!

This house is not on Barry Avenue but at the end of Oak Knoll Road on a cul-du-sac; think it's #36.

Pic of the house a few years ago. Land was also Joseph Wray's old homestead, where he started a "mill" in 1781. A road was built from Madison County courthouse to Joseph Wray's mill before 1800.

My father worked in that building for many years and you data is incorrect. It was built for Flint and Walling Mfg. Company.This company was headquartered in Kendallville, In.

Dad has a catalog from that company he found while working there. At one time the made electric cars in that building the owners of Newport Florists had one at one time. On the third floor on the south west wall there was a record of temps. and snowfall for many many years. Just thought I would add some info for you.

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!

Bill,

I 99.9% sure you put this in the wrong county! Athens is in Clark County, not Sumter. I'm sure it was just an accidental mouse click. It's happened to me before. 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.

You are probably correct. I was there late in the day and had some trouble identifying which buildings were on the list and which weren't. It is a very interesting town and most everything there could qualify to be on the list.

Not the first time, and probably not the last time, that I've messed up an identification.

Hello,

My family & I live in southern NH. My son, Matthew, was in the 4th grade this past school year. One of his final projects was to choose a NH landmark, research it, write a report and make a 3D model. Matthew chose the Mount Washington Hotel. It was interesting to learn some facts we didn't know about the resort and to build a replica. I thought it might be fun for Matthew if I sent in his photo to the hotel...I haven't told him. I wanted to surprise him. We have never been to the Mount Washington Hotel, but some time in the near future, would love to make a trip north.

We love northern NH <3 We will be camping in Glen this coming weekend...perhaps we can take a drive to show Matthew the actual landmark itself!

Hope to visit soon,

Stephanie

P.S. I've attached a few photos of Matthew with his model of Mount Washington hotel. In one of the photos, his friend, Ryan, is with him holding his own model of the Cog Railway.

My father (George Jakubowycz) bought the "Moody House" from Fred(?) Scott in 1951(?). At that time the house was pretty much as built. This consisted of: the main house (20+ rooms)and another 11 room house (no basement) directly behind main house(most likely servant quarters, laundry etc.). There was direct entry between the two on the first and second floor where the back stairs are. The smaller house had a hallway that led to the barn. The barn had horse stalls on the first level (on the left as one entered, an open center and not sure as to what was on the right (somewhat deconstructed). The second level was for hay. The third level had a stage in the back and a dance floor. I recall the remains of a grand piano there. My father was a man of great energy and made many changes including the tearing down of the house in back and the barn which was rebuilt as a poultry building in a larger form by the brook. As a boy my job was to help. Sold to Boochko in 1969(?). Changes included exterior painting of the main house (white with a blue trim), 1st flr windows were full floor to ceiling French reduced to present form (for heating reasons), extending porch on side in front of the kitchen, dismantling some of porch in back, tearing down the porch extension in front where one could load and unload under cover etc. Sanding and refinishing many of the floors. Adding 3 half baths. Built the small stable/garage where the barn had been. He also built the stone wall where the chicken barn now stands. From my observation no one else had the energy to keep up with it since. Another note: At time of purchase there were still the remains of two mill stones by the first waterfall, a few bricks and a length of iron pipe 18" or 24" in diameter. There must have been a grist mill there.

The grandson of the builder stopped in the mid 50s in a chauffeur driven car. Stated that his grandfather built in 1896 and that he the grandson had summered there.

I was finally able to get by the old Motel during daylight hours. It's pretty sad. Most of the stone walls still stand, though they are completely burned out. A couple gables of the office building's roof remain, but the main arch of the roof is collapsed inside. A row of 4 cabins on the opposite side of the lot are all that remain. Everything else appears to be a total loss.

At approximately 4 pm on April 22nd, 2014, a fire was reported at the Horseshoe Camp. The Main house, the office building, and 8 of the cabins have been destroyed by fire. There has been 1 arrest as of 8 pm on the same date. It seems one of the cabins was being used as a meth "lab", and a series of explosions started the fire. It's being reported locally as a total loss.

Is this structure still here? I remember driving by this place on my way to honea path, SC but I couldn't find it again later, did it get torn down?

US 221. not 921.

Great place to visit. My mother managed it years ago, lots of memories here!

You will not find this landmark. The BLM burned it to the ground in about 1996, without any compensation to the owners.

Update: the house was purchased by Hugh Alexander and Sue Fox Walters in 1986 and it became their residence in 1989.

I grew up a couple of miles south of here and Dad always called this Bugtown. He said it had a broom factory there and it caught on fire & burned the town down. Have no idea when that was, he was born in 1925 and it had already happened. Not real far from where Snider's Mill was suppose to have been. He would talk about it and finally I understood there was a mill at one time on the road between Gordonville and Burfordsville on the Whitewater Creek, not far from where the gravel road runs into it from Crump.

I am the owner of the George Short House. The street address is listed as 121 North Main Street; that is incorrect. The correct address is 151 North Main Street.

The home was purchased by Hugh Alexander Walters and Sue Fox Walters in 1989.

Thank you.

I remember my grandmother telling stories about this area. I googled it a couple of years ago and saw a list of the Board of Directors. One of my Fulbright ancestors was listed. I can't find the article anymore. I would love to see photos.

This is the only history I can find on this home! One website listing it for sale mentioned it has been vacant for 15 years?

The correct spelling is: Mayerhoff.

My son is 5 and loves water towers. We live in Plainwell and we were very sad to see that the smaller water tower had been taken down. My son has picture scrap books of all water towers he has seen and we would really like to know when the small water tower was taken down and why. I have searched the internet and can not find anything about it. Would you happen to know anything about it? Much appreciated if you do :)

Drove by the courthouse square tonite, 2-12-2014. Building is a large pile of rubble surrounded by fencing. Sad.
