Buffalo Mill c1900- The town of Buffalo is a mill town like many others in the southeast. It centered around the Buffalo Mill complex, and included a mill village, the company store, a bank and drugstore, an ice factory, as well as a baseball field/park. The mill was demolished in 2007 and all that remains are the two seven-story towers, one of which is the clock tower.
Hey @brickstorycom - got another tag for ya! This is a before and after of a house that I love to marvel at when I’m on my way to the gym. I can almost imagine standing out front in layers of petticoats complaining about the heat. It’s not all that different to my life right now... 😂
Crawfor House c1870-
After the Kings Mountain Railroad was completed in 1852, the McConnellsville Post Office was established here in 1854. The town, named for the McConnell family, was incorporated in 1906. The
first intendant was J. T. Crawford; wardens were J. F. Ashe, S. H. Love, J. O. Moore, and J. M. Williams. The post office was renamed McConnells in 1951. Pic 2 is a small store behind the home pictured. The Rock Hill Record reported on March 12, 1908 – “That burglars made an unsuccessful attempt to blow open the safe of Mr. J.M. Williams in his store in McConnellsville last Friday night. Someone called at the gate of Dr. Love, which may have frightened the burglars away.”
Next stop in Rochester was casually driving through a neighbourhood that features Frank Lloyd Wright’s Edward Boynton House. Built in 1908 for the Boynton family, today the house is a private residence. In 2012 the exterior and interior was restored, including furniture designed by Wright. #flw#franklloydwright
I heard today would've been F. Scott Fitzgerald's birthday, which is funny because just the other day I shared the great news that the house where his first love, Ginevra King, lived has been saved. But this is the place *where he lived*, a Romanesque Revival rowhouse known as Summit Terrace, designed by architects William H. Wilcox and Clarence H. Johnston Sr. in 1889. Although it's located in Saint Paul, the rowhouses are in "the New York Style" because each one is different. The Fitzgerald House has a polygonal two-story window bay, a recessed entrance under a round arch, and a mansard roof with a gable and two arched windows. F. Scott Fitzgerald lived here while he wrote the manuscript for his first novel "This Side of Paradise" as well as a number of short stories.
