Is this structure still here? I remember driving by this place on my way to honea path, SC but I couldn't find it again later, did it get torn down?

You will not find this landmark. The BLM burned it to the ground in about 1996, without any compensation to the owners.

I grew up a couple of miles south of here and Dad always called this Bugtown. He said it had a broom factory there and it caught on fire & burned the town down. Have no idea when that was, he was born in 1925 and it had already happened. Not real far from where Snider's Mill was suppose to have been. He would talk about it and finally I understood there was a mill at one time on the road between Gordonville and Burfordsville on the Whitewater Creek, not far from where the gravel road runs into it from Crump.

I am the owner of the George Short House. The street address is listed as 121 North Main Street; that is incorrect. The correct address is 151 North Main Street.

The home was purchased by Hugh Alexander Walters and Sue Fox Walters in 1989.

Mr. Chabala:

I do not find the surname Chabala on the list of men who were killed in Lidice. If the entire family was killed I am wondering if perhaps they were a part of the resistance movement? Entire families were rounded up and executed if they were suspected of underground activity, especially after the Heydrich assassination. At that time, two turn-coats gave information to the Gestapo naming resistance members and almost 400 people were executed. If they were involved in that way, their names may be listed on one of two bronze plaques posted near the church of Saints Cyril and Methodius in Prague. There, the 2 parachutist assassins were trapped in the crypt and met their deaths along with 5 others from different secret missions. The plaques and recognition of resistance members was not forthcoming until after the fall of Communism. None of the missions would have been successful without the help of those brave patriots. Perhaps you may find information through the Military History Institute in Prague. Genealogy orgs. may also be helpful. I do hope you find your answers. Toni

I have withdrawn my essay and replaced it with an essay written by Toni Brendel. There's also a new photograph of the Lidice Memorial, taken by Bill Ball last month, that shows the restored memorial.

Many thanks for Toni and Bill for their contributions and help in not only improving this listing, but also for telling the story of Lidice.

Thank you for including this house in your review. I can clarify the architectural description. It is a gothic revival cottage with Eastlake influences. Its core building is an 1859 ranch cottage (1 and 1/2 storey) with a 1871 addition across the front and addition of a kitchen off the back. A garage was attached to that in 1999.

Old Wooden Bridge
Posted September 9, 2013, by Lugnuts

Martha, according to the 1992 National Bridge Inventory, there was a 29' wooden stringer that crossed Ray Branch, carrying a county road numbered 05010, about 400' south of KY 80. The Kentucky inventory number of that bridge is 042*5102*C0231 and if this is the one you're looking for, you could contact the Kentucky DOT and see if they have any info about it.

The newest NBI describes a bridge at the same location but identifies it as carrying Dave Miller Road, so I suspect that's the one. This bridge was built in 2004 and is 67' long.

That's all I can find.

Posted September 9, 2013, by Martha (mstamper [at] vci [dot] net)

For many years I have been trying to locate information on an old wooden bridge in Graves County Kentucky that has now been replaced. This bridge is not anything special except to those who grew up around it and played under it as my children did. It was/is located on Dave Miller Road and Ray Branch runs under it. I want to know the year it was built and possibly the names of those who built it. Also any information on the Dave Miller Road would be invaluable to me as well.

We bought this home in 1988. Fell in LOVE with it the moment I seen it. After we bought it, we found out it was built in 1910 and had a wonderful history. With lots research we, placed this home on the historic registry back in 1988. We did as much work to it as we could and as we could afford to. We lived there almost 11 wonderful years and raised my children there. When we sold it, the person who bought it was planning to fix it up and bring it back to it beautiful glory, at least that was my understanding. I have not seen the house since I moved in 2002. I took trip to visit my family and took a drive by the home to see it. I WAS DEVISTATED at what I saw! I cried as I walked around this home and could not believe how it had been vandalized inside and out! I was not able to go in since I do not own it, but looked from outside thought it's dirty and broken windows. My curtains I had made for it are still hanging, dirty and torn. Several of the original windows are now broken which were all intact when we sold it. I walked around it and took pictures of it as I cried. I have lost or misplaced the pictures of it due to a divorce and moving to CA. Here are pictures of what I seen while visiting. I have no desire to live in it again, but if I had unlimited funds, I would buy it back and bring it back to it's original glory as I could! I have wonderful memories while living in this home and nothing can take that away. I just hate seeing it rotting to the ground....

The McCartney isn't on State Line. It is at the corner of Main and Front on the Texas side (Between the Bi-state and Union Station / Bowie County Corrections Center more or less). I don't think it ever actually fronted State Line. I don't believe State Line crossed Broad even before the Bi-State Justice Center was built in the mid-eighties. The Grim Hotel (also still standing and derelict) is at the corner of State Line and Third.

I enjoyed very much my return visit to your now-fully-restored home. Since I first saw it, I have looked upon it as an amazing place. It is like a piece of theater. The outside is pleasantly typical, but once standing within the wide porch, one is struck by the extraordinary woodwork surrounding the front door.

Stepping inside, one can only gasp. The entry hall, with its wide elliptical arch and carefully restored grained doors, not only matches the fine craftsmanship around the door, it is fully comparable to what one sees in the great mansions of 18th-century Virginia.

This is only the start of the story–and, yes, your house is a story-teller. Opening the panel that you so cleverly concealed in the hallway one sees that the fine woodwork came only in the house’s second generation. It had been smaller, a bit simpler. Its original wainscot and doorpost, perhaps dating from the mid-1700s, came to be concealed in new walls added in about 1800. Then, to the right, the parlor was trimmed elegantly in the Greek Revival style of, perhaps, the 1830s. Outside the porch, bay window, and Gothic Revival front gable came still later.

For generations, this house has grown with its generations. Each has treasured it while adding the best of their own time. Together they have made it a veritable museum of architectural styles. Your loving care has continued the tradition in the finest possible way.

Best wishes, and thank you again for your hospitality.
