The Patterson-Turner Homeplace has not been demolished. It was moved across Smith McGee Rd and sits further off the road than before.

What memories this brings back. My dad's company used to rent the old Heierding Brothers Meat Market building in about 1962. As a 10 year old, I was allowed to play upstairs, which was untouched since the days the owners had lived there. Roll top desk, windup record player with horn (like the old RCA ads) - completely furnished and unused.

I have some not so great pictures from a long time ago, but I recently started looking into the history of the area because of the blue house on the corner. I used to live there when I was younger and some really weird stuff happened while my family lived there. It's great that the place has greened quite a but over the years next to the institute building. I guess it just seemed so much larger when I was younger. I'm really intrigued to learn the history of both buildings especially the history of the blue house. I heard it used to be a store of some sort and possibly a doctor's office at one point. Would love more information. I hope I can travel out there again to see the place someday.

Regarding the comment, yes the Wapama is on the barge at the Bay Model but Alma is docked against the barge. For a number of years in the late 1980s Alma was kept at the Bay Model in Sausalito during the spring and summer when she was rigged for sailing. There was no small boat dock at Hyde St Pier so she was moored offshore at Hyde St nest to the Eppleton Hall.

I spent a number of years in the mid 80s working as a ranger and deck hand at Hyde St Pier supervising volunteer work parties on both Alma and Wapama. If you Google photos of Alma there is a color photo of myself and Erik Olsen (who still works at the Museum) overhauling blocks on Alma with Wapamas hull alongside.

Initial estimates of damage to the church is $17 million. The congregation has announced the intention to rebuild.

It has also been confirmed that the historic Schuelke pipe organ was completely destroyed.

Scam artists have already swung into action, with several fraudulent "go fund me pages" already online. If you feel the desire to help, the church asks that you do not make any donations to any go fund me page as none of them are affiliated with the church.

See addendum to the initial article for links to follow up stories.

The pictures posted on this page are of the old Jackson County Courthouse in Jacksonville 1884 - 1926 not the courthouse in Medford which was built in 1932 which is also on the NRHP.

The House of Ten Gables is gone. It was completely demolished a couple weeks ago, and it's lot is being used for a new apartment complex.

In 1949, I started my first job after high school (Terrace Park HIgh School) for Otis Elevator Company, whose offices were in the Duttenhofer Building at 6th Street and Sycamore St., on the first floor facing Sycamore Street. I worked there two years, and then began working for Appalachian Coals Inc., in the Transportation Building on Fourth and Sycamore Streets. Just a bit of trivia. I loved both buildings.

Update on Mail Pouch Barn....I thought this was interesting to have Smoke and not Chew on the sign.

I am looking for a list of owners from the first through the 1940s as I am searching to see if this was the site of my ancestor's plantation. His name was Isham Meadows b. 1740 and all I can find is he was buried on his plantation in Harris County, GA. It mentioned the town of Hamilton but this was the only plantation in Harris County I've found.,Any info or where I might look further I would greatly appreciate it as I do my genealogy.

Thank you!

I have attached a few pictures I've taken as the tourism coordinator of Monroe County, Ohio.

Perhaps you could add one to your compilation?

Sadly, after about 5 years, it appears as if this house is going to sit and rot where it was moved to in Spartanburg County. I drove by there this weekend and it is still sitting there, in the same un-assembled state it was in 2013.

Hi

I recently found a class picture from 1931 in perfect shape in the ceiling of my home. I am not sure if this is the same school as there were male and female in the picture. The photo is in excellent shape.
