My Great grandparents owned this property and raised their family here. George and Anna Heale. It was auctioned off after his death. 1931 I believe. My Dad and his siblings were born here at well. Any info or pictures through the years would be appreciated.

I have a very old photo of my grandfather sitting on the tracks in front of this store back in the early 40’s. My grandfather is from Augusta and his entire family but unfortunately we no nothing about them. My grandpa passed away in the 70’s.

Famous-Barr Outing Farm #3/Vernon S. Beck Memorial Park in Eureka, MO
Posted June 5, 2022, by Drew Walters (drewscout [at] icloud [dot] com)

Hi!

Thought I’d post this location for someone to add. This public park is located at 4 Boland Farm Road in Eureka, Missouri and contains the ruins of several cottages, a pumping station, main building, main pool, and a smaller pool. It’s so cool and should be on this website.

The resort was the third and final location of the Famous-Barr Outing Farm and was open from June 5, 1910 to the Spring of 1942. Vernon & his wife Lola owned the land as a summer home from 1952 to 1965 when Vernon commuted suicide in the second floor bedroom of the main building after learning he had cancer. His wife Lola was traumatized so she had her best friend Nova Medows live with her. Nova soon had some of her family members join her. Lola died in 1982 in the building’s first floor bedroom and then the building burned down in February 1984. Nova escaped with just her dog. It opened as a park in 1997.

This house was built in 1886.

Posted May 30, 2022, by Fred Kidd (Ernest [dot] kidd [at] yahoo [dot] com)

Some of the information on this site is incorrect. The house was built in 1896 not in the twentieth century with a total of 5600 square feet. It was the first residence in Hopkins County to have electricity (1913).

I am the current owner of the house. The exterior walls are three brick thick. It was built by Turner Ruby at the age of twenty five. The family owned the second largest lumber company in the state.

Huckleberry Hill or the Mayo Mill hill has been home to many of fine people over the years. Those of us which had family born and raised there had a lot of history that revolved around the old mill and many stories of it as well as the "Springhole" behind it.

The road over where the bridge goes over the rocks in the creek once was where people could get their cars washed in the 50's & 60's by local teens.

Not a wealthy area but up until the late 90's it was still a tight knit family area. Mostly church going families as we still had 4 or 5 thriving churches close by. Most walked to work back when the mill was thriving and the old post office was right out in front of the mill.

There was a young boy that was killed thats brakes failed him on his bicycle that came down the hill and ran into the mill's wall.

My grandmother who lived on that street, borrowed my papa's car once and not knowing how to drive she had to drive it into the side of their house to stop it right there on the mill hill.

I rememeber growing up and spending a lot of time down there, the trees were big, the yards were well kept and the atmosphere was family and neighborly.

I know what happened when it burned down and to say it struck at the heart of many of us was an understatement. The huckleberry hill was made up of mill houses and there was once a mill store for it's workers. I could go on and on but I better stop. I accidentally found this online and wanted to comment. I bid you all a good day.

Renollet was a stop on the Wabash Railway. The entire settlement was destroyed on March 28, 1920 (Palm Sunday) by a large tornado. It is believed to be the same tornado that traveled all the way to Lucas County, Ohio, destroying Brunersburg and Raab Corners, Ohio in its path.

www.radomes.org/museum/ has many photos and articles on Montauk Air Force Station and its massive AN/FPS-35 radar built by Sperry Corporation.

Montauk's four hundred Megahertz, five megawatt radar was so powerful and sophisticated, it could track aircraft on final approach to Miami International Airport, when propagation conditions permitted.

Radar tracks from Montauk were fed to air direction centers up in Syracuse and Newburgh, New York, among others.

The New York Department of Parks and Recreation at one time issued permits to visit the site, and may still. View from the top of the '35 blockhouse is gorgeous.

Thank you for featuring this site.

There are two identical plaques at two different locations in town, one on Carpinteria Ave at Concha Loma Drive, the other on Maple near Carpinteria Ave at the history museum. They were originally located on Highway 101 near Casitas Pass Road, with one on the northbound side and one on the southbound side. One-fourth mile southwest of there is the Portolá Sycamore, the location of The Carpenter Shop.

If the museum is owned and operated by the Rabun Gap Nacoochee school, I think is an absolute shame to watch it slowly deteriorate further. Mr. Dess Oliver and his students spent thousands of hours building and maintaining this museum. I personally spent many, many hours watching Mr. Oliver operate the little engine at his home before it was moved to the current location.

My Mother's family were all employees at the Kershaw, SC plant. My grandfather, Paul Taylor, was a floor mgr & I remember, as a young child, sitting on the hood of his car, at noon, petting the noses of the huge cotton mules as they wore feed sacks & ate their lunch along with their drivers.

My grandmother & mother worked in the loom room. My mother ran bobbins as she was small and fast, my grandmother, Molly Catoe Taylor, did pre-combing & set-ups. I still have her cotton Carder brushes.

My parents were both at the Orphanage. From what I remember them speaking fondly of their time there in the late 30’s. The plays they would put on, ice skating, your birthday month being able to pick 1 friend to sit (for 1 special day) at a certain table and eat ice cream, and pick a small gift from the treasure box. My mom was very sucky when she went there, so she was given a t spoon of cod liver oil a day. My dad was given newer shoes just before he went in. He remembers seeing his shoes in a pile and told the person that he thinks those shoes will fit him…he was happy to get them back. When they were both alive I tried to get their records. I would of been able to get one but not the other. The one I couldn’t was be they were a ward of the state. My parents were contacted to do a video and a story about their time in the orphanage while walking through the buildings. We were all set to do it and my mother backed out…she was worried if she would cry making it. I so wish they would of been able to do the interview and tour. It would of answered so many questions.

Hello

I’m interested in learning more about this home. My paternal grandmother was Elizabeth Dauwalter Buchanan. Her parents were Frederick Dauwalter and Wilhelmina Kratz (she passed away when my grandmother was fairly young.) I think this may have been a home to my grandmother’s family at some point.

I may also have some photos to corroborate, but I have a lot of material to go through.

My mom, who was married to Elizabeth Dauwalter’s son Richard, passed away recently and in going through her archives I may have found some photos. Have to go back through to be sure.

Is it possible to say how John was related to Fred? I do know that the Dauwalter family in Boonville operated a saddle shop, if memory serves correctly.

It's shown on the 1858 platt map ALTHOUGH it received several additions including the last one in 1910 transforming it to a townhouse.I believe it was built by Absalom Minor who was a Waukesha Baptist minister as well as the president of the Waukesha County Bank.Ownership went to Addison Nickel,a Waukesha pioneer, in 1866.His daughter Mary Jane Rankin was the wife of Walter Rankin, president of Carroll College.This then became their first home until 1880 when they became owner's of the Alexander Randall home which was moved to 120 McCall St.There were two previous owners before my grandparents including D.D.

Note: The GPS reference is for 104 Garfield (north), not 156 Garfield (south). The city uses a weird numbering system. All numbers below 50, i.e. 100, 115, 202 are south of Lincolnway and all numbers of 50 or more, i.e. 152, 263, 511 are north.

Corrected GPS would be: 41.4662238, -87.0516051
