The Deluge is a landmark? A few years ago, I saw the Deluge near Mandeville Louisiana rusting away. Has someone taken control of preserving the fireboat? I couldn't believe the condition the old boat was in.

On the 1876 Johnson Co. map shows Forman next to Cache river. I also have Mail from 1873 time span addressed to Forman. I have information saying Collingsburg came into play in 1812 changed to Ridenhower early in-order to get a post-office. I know not why the change to Forman, but according to my information it was changed in 1873. The saw-mill moved from Forman leaving the town with no means of support. It seems in this time-span the R.R. crossing took place maybe .6 of a mile to the East of where Forman stood, A town ensued again taking on the name of Ridenhower. At this point what was left of Forman relocated to Ridenhower. In August of 1911 again the name was changed to Forman. The town prospered and grew until the automotive industry started infringing on their means of support, the Railroad. People started using the Automobile for travel and transport. Illinois then built a good highway missing Forman by a few miles. One of the Rail roads shut down taking with it JOBS. People were forced to leave to support their family's. In 1957 a tornado hit Forman, destroying most of what was left. Again with no means of support the small town of Forman ceased to exist.

My grandfather was Arthur C Brandt-owner with my grandmother, Emma B Brandt of the Klepzig Mill Site from 1935 till the late 1960s when the National Park Service took possession. At the time of the takeover, Grandpa and Grandma owned 640acres of land there. Their nearest neighbors were the Weaver brothers and the Roberts family down by the Current River. The Brandt farmhouse was a large log house/cabin with 3 fireplaces, running water electricity(DC),from the now-broken down dam and the mill house, which we grandchildren called the "powerhouse". When we reached a certain age we were allowed to run the dam gates, flume and powerhouse turbine. Included were the car batteries for the D.C. STORAGE. In the basement of the house was a Kohler gas generator for a few appliances run on AC. The running water was pumped up from the spring house next to the road and dam. The house/cabin was about 3500 square.ft.and built of large pine logs harvested in the area. It also had forced air heat from an oil-burner furnace. No air-conditioner was needed due to thick log walls and large airy attic to keep heat out of main living areas. The dam was blown out by logs rushing downstream after a very bad thunderstorm and copious rain. Sandbags were used temporarily but eventually, Grandpa got Howell-Oregon electric CoOp to run power in to replace his D.C power plant. The mill was now unused for the first time in its history. The Brandt farm was a showplace for its time and hosted several well-known guests,such as Sen.Suart Simington and comedian Fred Allen. The log house was burned down in the early 1970s by the locals to prevent the Park service from placing a Park ranger residence in the house. Later the original Klepzig house was burned down as well as other outbuildings. SOMEONE wanted the place to be kept primitive and unnoticed by the general public. Unfortunately for them that is not possible now with the notoriety of the mill. Our family suspects that there was hope of conducting illegal activities on such a remote piece of land, such as poaching,moonshine, marijuana growing, etc.Thank God that it is now so famous and better protected. It was our family refuge for many years. No phone, poor radio reception. Just pure isolation from big-city life. Cherished times.

The Mealey House is not abandoned, it is private property. The windows are boarded due to gawkers and vandals. It is no longer haunted since Mr. Mealey started being called by his correct name in the early 1980's. The Rand house was built as a wedding gift to his daughter well after this house, in the 1870's I believe.

A lengthy drought in Connecticut has exposed a bridge that has been underwater for about 60 years. The small village of Colebrook River was lost when the Goodwin Dam was built on the West Branch of the Farmington River. The bridge crossed the river in the village and was never removed. While the bridge has been partially exposed in the past at times of low water, this is the first time it is accessible from the shore. I will be posting more photos on Landmark Hunter soon.

The Boller House was purchased by the Friends of Historic Boonville in the mid seventies with the mind of doing historic preservation on the house. While money was being gathered to restore the house, it burned to the ground.

The site was then cleaned up and remained vacant for many years until the late 80's or 90's. The site was sold to a private individual and they built a duplex on this site. It remains a duplex as of August 2016.

The Harold Burdick house at 2424 Stratford Road, Cleveland Heights was built in 1938. It is a very rare example of modern residential architecture for this period in Ohio.

It was bought by a house flipper for just $138K and was offered sale again at $289K. To earn that added $151K the seller has done the next owner the favor of replacing the kitchen with a kitchen almost equally undesirable. They have also gutted at least one of the original four (2 full, 2 half) bathrooms. The new bathroom(s) can only be described as an outrage. For no particular reason, the master bedroom's minimalist details have been destroyed. And now this entirely wood paneled room is entirely painted. As if that isn't enough damage, though I can't say for certain from the sale pictures, it appears that some of the original steel windows have been replaced.

We saw this coming, didn't we? We tend to hope that someone who knows what they have bought, know what they are doing, has a sense of responsibility and is motivated by something more than a good profit buys this sort of house.

Burdick worked for Walker & Weeks, on the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland, and for other local firms including with Philip Small on the Moreland Courts Apartments. He also practiced independently designing 28 homes in Shaker Heights.

Apparently, several hundred miles across the state is "close enough." In a couple of cases, I found a township and city with the same name. Different counties, but not only the same municipality name, the town and city had the same street names where the landmark was located.

Hello everybody :

I am writing the history of the emigration from Cerignale, now province of Piacenza and until 1928 province of Pavia, Italy.

I am trying to find out whether Caterina Castelli who died in 1902 was from Cerignale.

I have also noticed that some gravestones with the inscription and surname Castelli and / or Cerignale are also there.

In addition, I am interested in finding out the town names of the miners which many times are not shown on passenger lists.

My idea is to have a memorial that would honor them all here in Italy.

I'm a descendent of Abijah Buck and would love to meet the people that buy his house.

The first 5 photos posted for this landmark are not applicable to the Crown Hill National Cemetery. They are a part of the Crown Hill Cemetery, which is on the National Register of Historic Places as well, but only Section 10 of the Crown Hill Cemetery is the National Cemetery. In essence, this cemetery has 2 listings in the National Register. Only pictures 6 and 7 are of the National Cemetery.

Across Buffalo Creek, not the Wapsipinicon river.

Does anyone know what the current state of this school is or any recent history? I heard it served as an elementary school for Suring School District until 2003.

If it's vacant, I'd be interested in a tour.

I lived in this house after graduation from college in 1964. Am interested in seeing the house after recent renovation. I saw the house from outside during Thanksgiving holidays in 2015. I heard that the building would be completely renovated by April, 2016, and that there would be an open house.

As you can see from the metadata, "14 Sixth Street" is the address provided by the NRHP, which was the basis of the original listing and the photographs posted here. A review of the original application indicates this was a clerical error at the NPS. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

These photos are of the wrong house. The correct house is at 47 Sixth street. See it here on Google street view:
