Without seeing the original application to the National Park Service for the inclusion of this site on the NRHP, you almost need to go there and see. I did go to look for the application but as of this writing, the NPS has not digitized it. That said, some applications do not spell out the non-contributing structures in a district, although many do.

This isn't the State Line Bar - it's the old Ferguson service station.

Hi, it mentions one contributing object but doesnít specify what the object is and any history associated with it. I guess Iím curious as to what that might be. Thanks, Heath.

Re: the exact location of the Isaac Newland House in Madison County, Kentucky (see attached files: (1) NRHP application, and (2) Photos). LandmarkHunter.com lists the coordinates of the property as 37į47'55.2"N 84į19'56.2"W.

I can find no other site other than LandmarkHunter that lists the coordinates. The NRHP application provides a general, but not a specific, description of the location. Does anyone know the source for the coordinates? I would like to verify the information if possible.Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

The house in the photo is NOT the Barney Kelley house. This house was built in 1905 by V.J. Dahl and is a block away from the Barney Kelley house. The V.J. Dahl house is currently owned by St. Colman Catholic Church as the Priest's residence. The V.J. Dahl house is at 223 East East Street, while the Barney Kelley house is at 321 East East Street.

By the way, the Barney Kelley house now has a slate roof.

Sorry I missed this. My wife and I did a Rt. 66 trip in Missouri last fall. I was very impressed with Jensen's Overlook and wish I'd known about this one. Are they similar?

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.

Yes that was the elementary school in town. All 8 grades went there I believe. I visited my cousins, the Tibbets family back in the 60's. They owned the bowling alley in town...now looks to be a garage/man cave next to the house on Pleasant street. The older kids at the school were enlisted to teach the young ones. A day certainly gone by.

Zenda had a population of 90. Looks as though that probably still is the case.

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.

This was not a privately owned paper company tower. It is the Nursery Tower, built by the Wisconsin Conservation Commission (predecessor of the modern DNR) in 1932. It was manufactured by the International Stacey Company and is a standard height of 99' 9" to the bottom of the cab. The Nursery Tower was staffed regularly during spring fire season until 2015 when the WI DNR decommissioned it's lookout network.

Not much out there, but I did find a mention of it in a history of Ft. Thomas. "Robson Spring, on Alexandria Pike, is a surviving mineral spring used regularly in the 1920s and used by many for drinking water during the Flood of 1937." Until about 30 years ago the water still flowed out of a pipe in the water works that stands next to the springhead. People would come in station wagons and fill jugs of water, and we would stop by for a drink on the way to and from the Midway district when we were kids.

This is my Uncle John's and Aunt Dorothy's home. John was very involved in the designing. Dorothy's father Henry Neuhoff lived with them there after his wife died in an automobile accident.I spent many childhood days there: Christmasses,Easter Egg hunts,family dinners. Dorothy took me hiking with her in Percy Warner Park. We spent many a family Sunday afternoon there. As a child I was fascinated with how Dorothy had a button under the carpet in the dining room. She would step on it and the server would appear. I don't know if the subsequent owners changed the interior of the house. It was very avant garde with use of glass brick two stories high by the entrance stairs. It was a six acre plot on Chickering Road.The inspiration I believe was Art Deco.John died shortly after being promoted to President of Cain Sloan Department Stores.John, Dorothy, and Mr. and Mrs. Neuhoff are buried in Calvary Cemetery in Nashville and in the same Neuhoff plot is my mother, Eleanor Dubuisson Fossick.I believe I have some photos of when my children and I visited there in the 1970s and early 1980s which I may add later.

I believe you mean, Pioneer Camp and Wellston, OK, not Warwick, OK.

I think the rooms have been gone for some time now and the main building had a facade added many years ago. It was a local barbeque for quite a long time. Don't know the condition of the building interior, the last restaurant closed due to a fire. But Butcher's Barbecue Stand is just to the east of that building in the area of the parking lot and the old "cabins".

My grandmother owned this from 1946-1966, her name was Marion W. Richardson. I would like to meet someone to visit a place I spent many wonderful childhood days. I have some pictures when she owned it if you would be interested. I and my brothers and my sister are happy that the place is still there. Thank you Frank G. Hill

There's a fairly detailed article at this link about the village of Cook Station:

According to the NHRP Registration Form for this house it was sold to an Alonzo L. Jaqua in 1909.

I visited the location in person last weekend and have posted the correct picture of this building.

I was actually there and I can now confirm that the HABS pictures are not the correct pictures. I have posted a picture of the correct building.

Apparently our great great grandfather built this historic house. It is also called the Votaw-Jacqua House but I can't find any history why it would be named that. Is Jacqua French maybe for Jonas?
