Sorry, it is called the Old Settlers Festival

Building is still in use during the Homecoming Festival.

Posted January 22, 2020, by Mike Daffron (Daffmikron [at] gmail [dot] com)

Used to be coming into Bowling Green from the West end was a real treat: crossing the 2-span Eel river bridge, then seeing the Greeting sign. Unfortunately, the bridges are now gone and the sign has fallen into disrepair. The Festival still happens in mid-summer. Downtown looks like it might be making a resurge, with the excellent Pioneer Café opening. Let's hope the sign gets a refurbishing too!

This school was still in use in the mid-to-late 1950s. My brother went to it. By 1960, when I started school, it was already closed.

My school friend Jessie O'Brien lived down the street from me in Langhorne, PA, before her family moved to London Purchase Farm in New Hope, PA. I knew it was an historic property but had no notion of its value or story. We were convinced there were ghosts there, of course. It was a beautiful place.....but far beyond my family's means...which I knew, but until this moment didn't really grasp...my goodness! It certainly sheds new light on what can happen if you found a company in an entirely new business, as Jessie's father had. Sigh. We didn't just move away from each other, but moved apart as friends, and I didn't know why....but the change in that family's (literal) fortunes obviously accounted for a lot. I often wonder what happened to the James O'Brien family. In a way, it hurts. But if anyone knows, I'd love to find out.

I believe the photos shown are of the wrong building. The building shown is the newer masonic lodge, up the street northward. I attend tango classes at 3220 Federal, and while yes it is the old masonic lodge, it does not look at all as shown. A picture of the actual building at 3220 Federal is at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Highlands_Masonic_Lodge . The tango classes are run by Gabriela Carone (www.gabrielatango.com), and I believe she now owns the building.

I'm glad to see that this building is still standing. Earlier this year it was declared unsafe and subject to demolition by the local authorities. The roof has collapsed as seen in an aerial photography accompanying this article in Montana Standard. The building is an outstanding example of 1880s cast iron architecture.

The Thompson-Fasbender Mansion was engulfed in the early morning hours of December 14, 2017. The five alarm fire severely damaged the house. No one was injured. The owners of the house, Pam and Dick Thorsen, were on the first floor and escaped. The upper floors were unoccupied. Cause of the fire was reported to be a malfunctioning switch in an upstairs boiler.

On December 14, 2017, the house was engulfed in flames.

A series of dramatic photos of the fire, now added to the listing, were taken by Marta Tierney of KDWA radio in Hastings and used with her kind permission, including the photo with this post.

The house is currently for sale. The owners, Pam and Dick Thorsen, are offering the house for sale and point out that is eligible for historic tax credits and grants which could aid in the restoration.

My grandmother, Josepha Hodges, was born in that house in October, 1899. Her father, Joseph Hodges (my great grandfather) was married to Minnie (my great grandmother), and he died before Josepha was born. Minnie later married Edward Brown and they had three daughters, Anglessia, Naioma and Edith. Edith's son, Harold Brown lives in a nursing home in Martinsville. My mother, Tronette Isenhower Hetts, fondly remembers spending summers in the Paragon house. My grandmother, Josepha, married Tron Isenhower from Martinsville and they divorced. She then married Bernard Guettier and they owned the house in the late 1940's and early 1950's. I have a photo of the house when it was red brick with painted white shutters.
