Hi

This is an odd question that you may not be able to answer. But my grandmother apparently taught at one of the small schools in the Bridger area in the 1920's -1930's. Her name was Montana Hodges and after she married her name was Montana Gilbert (her nick name was Monny)

Any chance that you can confirm she taught at one of these schools?

My grandma and her siblings were there somewhere between 1930 to 1940 ish. I have been trying to find out about her mother. I have been told her mother passed away and that is why the children have been given to the county home. Please if anyone can help with information it will be great to hear. My grandmas name was Shirley Gallagher and she had 6 siblings all older then her except for her baby sister.

Doug, if you look at the page under "Sources" you'll find a link to the original application to include the complex on the National Register of Historic Places. "National Register database" is the link to the National Archives. The document is comprehensive and very thorough - in other words, there is a lot to wade through but I think it will answer most of your questions.

Does anyone know about the Children's Home School building? I believe it was just West of the administration building. I lived in one of the four "cottages", mostly in Boys 1 in about 1979-81. I always wondered what those cottage buildings were originally intended for. I assumed they were Tuberculosis residence buildings but they may have been outbuildings from the agricultural college. They weren't very fancy but I am sure they didn't build them just for us. Also, when I lived in the Children's Home, I remember a big hospital that was white with tall narrow windows, behind it just to the North. Kids told me it was an abandoned insane asylum and that it was haunted. I guess you could see the electric shock rooms and they had a barber chair you could sit in. They tore it down before I could never see it. Now the whole Children's Home is gone except for the admin building.

BethesdaNaval Hospital is known for receiving thousands of Marines who were wounded during the Vietnam War.

It is the place where President John F. Kennedyís body was taken for autopsy after he was assassinated on Nov 22, 1963.

It is also the place where Secretary James Forrestal jumped to his death in 1948.

My parents were good friends with a member of the Dawson family and we lived there on the property through the summer of 1976. I remember there was an illegal alcohol still hidden upstairs in the house, and I used to play in the mud-filled basement and the creek out back (I was around 8 years old). I also remember there being both a family cemetery plot with crypts and headstones, as well as a slave graveyard with small markers over to the side. There was also a separate kitchen building that looks like it's long gone.

Mill Dam on Manatawny Creek
Posted March 11, 2021, by John F Dengler (Jdengler47 [at] comcast [dot] net)

In the 1960s there was a mill dam in Earlville across the Manatawny Creek at where Trout Run enters the creek.Where Manatawny and Longview Rd. meet. The dam allowed swimming, boating, docks etc. above the dam before the flood of 1972 washed it away. Does anyone know the name of the mill or dam?

hello. I have some wonderful pictures of the Lick Log mill store. That i took many years ago. Probably from the middle 1990's. It was a very quint store back then. I was thinking maybe the owners or the city would like to have them.

We've been by the store many times this past year. Its a shame its just sitting there rotting. Maybe these pictures might spark the city/county to clean it up to make a beautiful landmark indeed.

Thank you

Posted March 1, 2021, by Kathleen Colquhoun Halm (kathleenhalm3 [at] gmail [dot] com)

This is inaccurate. The older part of the house dates from the 1790s. The portion with the porch and columns dates from the 1850s. The house was originally built by Robert Huston, first justice of the peace of Lincoln County. That part of the hosue extends from the front, with the smaller entrance, along the side to the second lilac bush. (The section after that my father added in the 1980s.) The Greek Revival section was added on (after part of the original house had been removed) by his descendant Gilmore Huston in the 1850s. The house has two styles from two time periods and is older than this post states. My family has owned this house since 1965 and I live there for much of the year and have for many years.

Error due to a typo when I added the landmark. Accidentally typed 1950 instead of 1850! Thanks for bringing to our attention and it has now been corrected.

Hi, My family moved to Texola in 1906. My mother was born there. My sister and I were born there. And my grandparents lived there until 1971. I am kin to most of the people in the cemetery located south of town. The building that you have pictured was not the Longhorn Trading Post. It was a Texaco Filling Station and a little stop and go grocery store that was owned by my aunt and uncle. I've spent many hours sitting on the ice chest, looking at the magazines, and talking to my family as people came and went. The little turquoise building on the south side of the old Route 66 was the church of Christ. Across the street with the roof caved in was the Methodist Church. I'm 74+ and my plot is located in the Texola Cemetery to be filled at some later date. Have a great day!!! Toodles,

Jo

As a little leaguer back in the late '50s, I recall entering on the far right into what might appear as an annex to this building. Through that entrance then up the stairs led to the old K of C hall, where our Little League East baseball team held its annual banquet, guests of the K of C who sponsored our team.

That's not this bridge! That's the Mt Zion bridge over on KY-458 (used to be KY-431 when traffic could still go across the covered bridge). The bridge is still there alongside the newer concrete bridge.

There was a time (1960's/70's) when they were actively entertaining damming up the Beech Fork up near the confluence with Chaplin River to make the large Campground Reservoir that would have inundated The Mt Zion covered bridge, the Chaplin covered bridge, the Sharpsville covered bridge and this one.

This bridge has been gone since KY-152 was straightened out near the Beech Fork in the mid-80's.

Hey Bill, et al -

I may have found the discrepancy for the address (116 Candler vs 39 W Candler).

I was looking at the Sanford Fire Maps (1921-1925 edition) of the area, and noticed in it that at one time, Candler St was one long street from origin to termination - with the origin starting at Midland St, it would be 10 or so city blocks to reach the Jackson-Johns house, thereby placing it's original address (when it was built) at around 116 Candler St.

However, sometime between then and now, the street was split - everything west of Broad street became West Candler St, and everything East became East Candler St - hence, my house now being at 118 even though I am west of the W. Candler and Church St intersection.

It doesn't explain the "demolished" status though, as obviously the house is still there and even accommodating the split, 116 W Candler was demolished many years ago as there was a tennis court there from the 40's all the way up into the 80's - now it's an empty lot next to me owned by my neighbor.

Anyway, hope that helps with the address difference.

Thanks!

RBS

Posted October 14, 2020, by Jeff Vest (Nocrap4me [at] comcast [dot] net)

Hello. I ran across what looks to be the remains of an old bridge. Only the deteriorating cement is left along the banks as far as I can tell. It's just East (upstream) of the Cumberland Rd bridge over White River.

You live in California and your greatest worry is exploding trees?

The accurate address is 229 W Riddle Ave. 299, and St. are incorrect.

Please put the actual address of the church somewhere. The address is very hard to find. Someone might like to actually donate to the church, and this would be the only way to send anything to the church. Thank you.

These horrible trees are literally a threat to our lives. The Eucalyptus is a fire bomb. There is only one way out of our neighborhood, we suffer from regular wild fires. If an historic landmark is more important than our property and lives then I have lost faith in mankind. Itís just mean.

There are a couple of pics included in the article. It is indeed gone.

According to several reports on September 10, 2020 this landmark may have been destroyed by fire:

"The Manning Fire outside Colfax which destroyed the historic covered bridge over the Palouse River. . ."

Richard Gutman, author of "American Diner Then & Now, writes "Orleans Manufacturing (1947-1948) is thought to have built only two diners. One is extant. Originally called Dauphin's Superior Diner, in Rochester, New York, it was recently restored and reopened as the Highland Park Diner on its original site."

Hello,

Do you know the font that is used on the tower spelling Crandon?

Thank you!

Just want to thank you for posting this. I have been sitting on the beaches of Westerly RI for years, and with binoculars, have been staring at and wondering what the big blocky building was!! Thanks so much.

Do you have any photos of the carriage house that was down the hill from the Tappan House? It burned down in the 1980s.

There is a really large protest around this statue right now along with many other confederate statues in the US right now. I got some pictures of the protest which has been going on for a month or two since the people who own the land did not want to move it.

I made sure to keep people's faces out of my pictures, but yeah, pretty decent sized protests.

Posted earlier a picture of how the Furnace looks after cleanup work was begun in March 2020 taken by Tammy Adams, Spring Run, PA. The picture here shows the condition of the Furnace when PVHS was deeded to us by The Franklin County Historical Society. As you can see much work has been done by volunteers. There is more to be done.

The Carrick Furnace has been transferred to the local Path Valley Historical Society in February 2020. Cleanup efforts were immediately commenced, a driveway and parking lot added, and this relic furnace is in much better condition. Visitors to the site should use caution and stay away from the limestone stack and practice safe walking. Work is ongoing and Friends of The Carrick Furnace has been established on Facebook. Donations and volunteers are welcome. You may contact the Path Valley Historical society at

The Sells Brothers, Allen, Lewis, and Peter were better known as proprietors of the Sells Brothers Circus and Sells-Floto Circus. The circuses wintered in Topeka but the brothers were also known as real estate investors in the Topeka area.

Artifacts and ephemera of the Sells Brothers circus investments are held in the Circus World Museum in Baraboo, Wisconsin. (It is listed here in Sauk County, Wisconsin as the Ringling Brothers Circus Winter Quarters.)

You have to want to come here to bother coming here. It's not easy to find and do not rely on your GPS. Many of the mapped roads here are not roads at all. One road my GPS sent me to was actually a line of high voltage transmission towers. Until the forest service restores this tower, there's not much reason to come here.

Regarding the contractors Bailey & Mullen. Of the latter, Mullen was William J. Mullen whose family still resides in Arizona. Mr. Mullen also built other notable structures such as the school house in Cataract Canyon as a federal project for the Havasupai in the interior of The Grand Canyon. The school house has recently been condemned and may only exist in photographs. You may contact Robert Mullen at rfmullen@cox.net
