Carl:

For some reason the edit page in LandmarkHunter does not allow a change of county, unlike BridgeHunter, where the county can be changed.

You might have to make a new entry in the correct county and delete the old. Hope this helps.

How do I change a mislocated landmark to show in the proper county? Changing the map location did not do it. (Boundary, Washington shows in Whatcom County, not Stevens.)

Most of the original entries to this site came from the National Park Service. Original applications do not contain modern GPS coordinates but the old system of UTM References. Errors in translation or translations from erroneous UTM references are more common that you might think. Most of us try to fix these as we go.

Your GPS numbers and map show a point that is about four miles east of the Blair line. Many property boundaries reflect the Blair Line, but not in the area you picture. The correct coordinates are 34° 34.847′ N, 83° 36.985′ W

Posted May 19, 2021, by Daniel Greenwood (420meangreen [at] gmail [dot] com)

This comment is in regards to the photo labeled 5. Childrens' Home Wauwatosa Wis. I was placed in this building in 1970. At that time the right side of the building housed Junior Boys West and the left side housed Senior Boys East. Only the first floor was used as living quarters, with a couple rooms on the second floor used for recreation rooms (pool and ping pong rooms). I was told that the building used to house infants. There was an outdoor enclosed slide that was attached to the back of the building on the third floor that went to the ground level which was used as a fire escape for the infants in case of a fire. We used to climb to the top and slide down it for fun. Also the hill in the back was used for sledding and toboggans in the winter time. The power plant was at the bottom of the hill. The power plant is still there. The grounds also had three or four more cottages that were modern ranch style units. There was also a school which had classrooms as well as a gym, indoor swimming pool, and a roller skating rink. The food was cooked in the administration building (which still stands) and was delivered to the individual cottages. I was in and out of MCCH from 1970-1977 and was quite familiar with the grounds and the staff. There were underground tunnels that led to several buildings. I navigated the tunnels that led to Milwaukee County General Hospital. I'm pretty sure this building was originally the infants hospital, but I'm not sure. After this building was closed down and I was moved to the more modern cottages, I would get weekend passes and sleep in the old building at night because I didn't have a place to stay. While there we explored the building and in the basement there was a lot of old medical equipment. I have been trying to find out the origins of the building and it has been difficult. If anyone knows it's orgin please post the information. Just a note about changing times. When I turned 12 years old my mother signed a consent form so I could smoke cigarettes, so I was allowed to smokes 8 cigarettes a day. The staff would hold our cigarettes in lockers and pass them out to us at various time throughout the day. The funny thing is that I was placed there because my mother was deemed an unsuitable parent. Then they let a 12 year old smoke.

A little more information about this old tevern would be of great interest. I don't see what year it was built only years of significance starting in 1810. Who built the tavern? Of course for me the name Morris makes it of interest. Also, is there any pictures of the interior and does anything of the original tavern still exist inside? For instance, another tavern built in Bedford County, the tavern still exists inside of the Defibaugh tavern.

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)

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.

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.

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.

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,

There appears to be very little out there about him. A photo album with the name Ernest J. Hess was donated to Columbus State University in Georgia. Is if from this Hess? I have no idea but it could be. https://archives.columbusstate.edu/findingaids/SMC132.php

You might inquire at the American Institute of Architects.

The Thomas Scott House was used for a field hospital for both Union & Confederate wounded after battle of Mansfield in April 1864. The house is located about two miles west of the old town of Kingston and is still standing, although in poor condition, to this day.

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.

The photo is not the Nathan's Department Store. Nathan's is across the street from this building.

I checked on it today, I attempted to attach a photo not sure if it will send with email. It’s still completely intact. Thanks to the careful harvesting of the quarry operations, they have kindly left a buffer zone around it.

The majority of NRHP listings on this site were downloaded from the National Park Service archives. To say that the database has a few typos would be an understatement.

Built in 1888.

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

I am the current owner, and it is most definitely not demolished!

Wow! Best laid plans... went down to take pictures of the house, ended up tripping on the curb and sprained my ankle. Just didn't feel much like trying to get shots after that.

But finally after a lot of bed rest and wearing a boot, I hobbled today down there to take the pictures; find them attached.

Thanks!

I was around 14 to 15 when I started going to drag city. My older brother and me started going to drag city a bunch in the 60’s and then we started going to Paradise drag strip one week and drag city the next really in joyed them both. Then I was drafted into the army at 18 then that was the end of our drag racing. Watching the funny cars spoiled me then we couldn’t hardly watch the street cars race any more. Is drag city strip still there under the grass. And if you know about Paradise please let me know about it too.
