There's nice article describing the history of and ongoing restoration of this hotel @
Thanks for posting this and many other treasures of the Treasure State. If this establishment was in Bozeman or Missoula they'd be charging $300 a night.
Today's Montana Standard carries an interesting article on efforts to restore the former carriage house of W.A. Clark Jr.in Butte. The building later housed the Mining City's dealer in Apperson Jackrabbit motor cars.
After 50 years the Tourist II was returned to its home port of Astoria, Oregon in 2016.
Does anyone else think this looks like the inspiration for the Dalek? (If you're not familiar with Dr. Who, you might want to do an internet search.)
This church was demolished fall 2018
This building was demolished last summer 2018, sadly
A name on this marker is misspelled. "John Witherood" should read "John Withrow" (or Witherow).
Would you take some photos of it for us? It should be documented as it is before it is either restored or demolished.
Somebody save this place. It is currently in a state of complete disrepair with the second level collapsing.
We are looking at purchasing a larger home for our family. We saw that the Henry Paepke home in Neenah is for sale. Would love more information on this home. Is it currently occupied? Are there special stipulations in owning a historical home?
The local newspaper, the Post Crescent as well as USA Today have written about our family. Here are some articles about us! We need a bigger house for our growing family! Three adopted children with special needs!
I live here! Neat place!
Very nice pictures John. It's amazing how they also did the restore of the MILL as well.

Patterson is located in Benton County not in Douglas County, Washington.
Bainbridge Island is located in Kitsap County not Kittitas County, Washington.
Battle Ground is located in Clark County not Kittitas County, Washington.
My Great-Grandfather was Richard Moyle and from the stories I have been told there was a "Gentleman's Agreement" that it would be returned to it's natural state. I believe my family looked into this awhile ago and other's knew about this but there was nothing documented.
Thankfully this barn was marked and dismantled before it was lost for good. It has been stored in a warehouse in Rushville until a new home is found.
Perhaps it is being re-restored? It was looking a bit tired last time I saw it.
The caboose is presently not at this location. I am contacting town leaders to determine where it has been relocated. Hopefully it has not been destroyed.
The house still stands. It was moved to 2121 College Avenue in 1984 by Richard and Shirley Crowley to prevent it from getting demolished. It is currently the property of the College of Idaho.
Currently owned and lived in by Greathouse family, address is 527 Pea Ridge Road, Stamping Ground, Ky
The road it is on is actually now called Mill Road, it was changed from Avery many years ago when 911 came to the area to avoid confusion. as there was another section of Avery that ran parallel. Mill Road bridge is now a township park.

Arrow does not point to site. The building is on the north east corner lot on the 305 and 7 intersection.
1828 public house with older rear section. The older building was moved and attached to the public house in a Civil War era renovation.
Previous comment is correct. New photos of the Liberty Theater posted.
Love this house! Love to tour and see the place restored soon!
There may be a notation on the building itself, but I don't remember anything.
How would I find out when this building was built?
This was reported in the news:
A Fire on May 15, 2018 caused major damage to the structure, including the collapse of the entire roof and the shorter southern steeple. In early July 2018 the congregation said they would rebuild the church using the Walls of the Church.
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.
That photo is NOT the Hogue House
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.

We don't have any connection to the landmarks on this site other than an interest in them. I believe that if you look elsewhere online, you should probably be able to find if the landmark is open for visits.
I will be close to page county va. In a few days, and was wondering if I could come by and see Fort Phillip Long for myself. I have heard of it for years from my family elders. I am a relatively and would love to see it and take a few pictures to take back to North Carolina
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.
The photo of the cement plant that is posted on this page is actually located at Durkee.
The photo you posted is of the wrong building the liberty theater is at 1010 Adams avenue the build that is in the photo is at 218 fir street.
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?
Awesome. I think I like abandoned drive-ins as much as still active ones. Eastern Ohio has a pretty good selection of abandoned ones, and I've found some pretty cool ones in WVA and PA as well. Hoping to get back to PA this fall for a long weekend.
@firstname.lastname@example.org, I thought that the picture of the demolished house was the Meyer Saul House? If that was really the Candler-Linder House, please let me know which house is the Meyer Saul House.
Santa Ysabel is located in San Diego County not in Orange County.
The HABS pictures posted for this landmark are not for the Old Christ Church. The pictures are of Christ Church, located at 18 W. Wright Street, Pensacola, FL.

Added and credited to you.
You need a photo of this classic place. Town was named Peers, now only the store remain when the railroad closed down.
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.
House's correct name is Candler-Linder House. It was torn down in Feb of 2017 and no longer exists. The photo at the top of the page is the incorrect property. The google maps street view on the page shows the archived street view image of the correct property.
That means that at one time this was a Kentucky Club barn. I believe Kentucky Club was a "roll your own" tobacco produced by Bloch Brothers, who also made Mail Pouch. (As well as WOW and Melo Crown.)
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.
The house I found at the indicated location on 5/26/18 has changed a lot since the original photo was posted on the web site. It's a different color. The decorative roof seen from the satellite view has been replaced.
There is a very nice WWI memorial at the courthouse as well. It lists the men from Fayette County that lost their lives in the war.
5/26/18 Urban Sprawl has taken over this area. This farm house is gone.
The street view is not correct, it is of the house directly to the east of the Lacy house. Here is the proper street view link https://goo.gl/maps/oCk9wDbPNgC2
I was 11 years old @ time of crash. My uncle Henry "Rat" Lee lived in the area of crash on Stump house mtn. my uncle Rufus Lee lived in Walhalla and we were visiting him one night up town when a truck came through town hauling the fuselage of the plane. I always heard that the engines were too difficult to recover and were left @ crash site ???
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 City of Steeples has suffered a tremendous loss.
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.
Taken April 25,2018
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.
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.
Since posting picture in 2014, have made contact with third cousins living in Delaware, Emily Dilworth Mitchell and two siblings on the East Coast, related from Great Grandfathers in 1840-1860's were brothers.
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.
The Ray House is open for tours by appointment only, due to lack of volunteers. Contact the Benton County Historical Society on Facebook or by email: email@example.com
I grew up in this church I'm so glad it was saved. Please help these people to get the monies to restore this building its a hidden treasure in our neighborhood which we love. We are now in the progress of turning it into a church/community center.
Changed. Thanks for the correction info.
Demolished between October 2016 and September 2017. Replaced with a shelter along a rail-to-trail path.
I am writing my personal history, for my children and posterity. I was wanting to know if I could use your picture of the Silvermines dam?
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.
Lockridge Medical Clinic - Demolished on Jan 11, 2018
