The Butterfield House attracted hundreds of guests and others from throughout the Northeast. It was called "the most modern hotel between New York City and Chicago." The hotel, built by John Butterfield on the northeast corner of Genesee and Devereux streets in downtown Utica, was designed by Utica architect Azel L. Lathrop. It cost nearly $250,000 to build and furnish.

The first floor had offices, a gentlemen's reception room and a reading room. The second floor was dominated by a dining room whose design, accessibility and numerous convenient features, says the Utica Observer, "call forth expressions of almost unlimited praise." There also was a ladies drawing room, a library and billiards room. The third and fourth floors had single bedrooms and suites. The basement was the home of Chris Freymuller's six-chair barber shop, complete with a back room with three bathtubs.

If you love old maps and town history, you'll love this month's article exploring the 1906 Atlas of Essex County. (With more to come in future issues!) This map details the area of Union Street which had some of the grandest homes in town, which is why it is still often referred to as the start of the estate section of Montclair. What's your favorite historical place in town?

Did you know? The name Temple ‘Meads’ refers to the fact the land was previously occupied by water meadows that were part of Temple parish.

Today’s property section in @dailymail looks at how former factories, churches and offices are being converted into houses.🏡
Our client Barratt Homes is doing just this at its Chapel Gate development in Basingstoke. The iconic listed Eli Lilly building will become part of Chapel Gate and will house 96 apartments! Great to see a local housebuilder preserving a piece of history while providing affordable housing within the area.🏘

This photograph shows the old Khyber Pass Hotel in Dalkey. It is taken from the O'Flanagan Collection in dlr LexIcon Archives. Frank O'Flanagan lived in 'Jamrud', the house to the right of the photograph. O'Flanagan's house was originally built as a gardener's lodge for Khyber Pass (before it was converted into a hotel) and it was named after Jamrud Fort, a large fortress located at an entrance to the Khyber Pass mountain route, near Peshawar, in modern day Pakistan #dublin #ireland #flashbackfriday #archives #dalkey #dlr #dlrlexicon #dunlaoghaire #dunlaoghairerathdown #localhistory #khyberpass #jamrud

This is Brixton Windmill a hidden gem of London and often referred to as Brixton’s best kept secret. Built in 1816, the windmill was operated for all its working life by three generations of the Ashby family, and was known locally as Ashby’s Mill. It is the only remaining windmill of 12 that stood in the Lambeth area at various times. These included several industrial mills along the River Thames. This 202-year-old Grade II* listed building is London’s last working windmill. Restored in 2011 with funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund, Lambeth Council and the Friends of Windmill Gardens, it is open from April to October and regularly mills flour to sell to visitors and local retailers. For more information or to book a full guided tour, go to brixtonwindmill.org/visit.

#50Years Ago This Week:  TWO LOCAL PILOTS WIN – Snoopy Tops 'Red Baron' in Nyack Power Regatta
Excerpt from the Journal-News, Week of August 12-18, 1968
Photos by Andy Dickerman 
Several thousand persons watched two local drivers pilot their high-speed powerboats to victory yesterday over 24 others in the fourth annual Nyack Regatta.

Seventeen-year-old John Powell of Nyack won the E-class in a 13-foot modified ReeseCraft especially designed for Hudson River use by Reese DeLorenzo of Congers.

DeLorenzo, chairman of the race and president of the Hudson River Racing Association, co-sponsored it along with the F. and M. Schaeffer Brewing Co.

Benson O'Connor of New City, Powell's mechanic, was the winner in the larger J-class. To win this class, O'Connor had to beat last year's U.S. national racing champion, Tom Strickle, who traveled from Dayton, Ohio to compete.

The champion won more races than any other driver last year but couldn't survive yesterday's choppy waters. He finally yielded to O'Connor, who is only in his first year of racing. .

#flashbackfriday #lostvincent Since we'll be at the @kyillafarmersmarket tomorrow morning, we thought we'd see what Kyilla School photos we have in our Local History Image Gallery! This shot is of sisters Jenny and Elizabeth Donnelly in the Kyilla School foyer for a fancy dress competition in the 1950s. The girls are dressed as dancing girls, wearing matching gold dresses. The competition was held in the evening after school. 
For more great vintage snapshots, have a look at our Local History Image Library.

A few of you have asked for a video of the Mercedes Turbo-Diesel running, because you didn’t believe me that it did! 🤣  Well, here she is, back when it was still actually in the Mercedes.  The rattling you hear is a bad V-Belt on the A/C pulley.  Aside from that, this motor runs and sounds amazing, even before all of the work I’ve done to it! 😉👍🏻

Incredible to think of the lives that people lived on plantations only just over 150 years ago #localculture #anothermomentintime #localhistory #neworleans
My view today. I had no idea there was water in the back of Sajo 🚜 Farm.  I also didn't know sajo stands for Sam Jones. Apparently there are free roaming peacocks-which of course were in hiding because of course.

I had the opportunity to visit the #polsonmuseum on a recent trip home to the Pacific Northwest. Of all the local lumber history, what I enjoyed most were these photos of the cooks and bread bakers who cranked out 50 loaves a day for hungry loggers employed by the Polson Logging Company camp. I also kinda dig that table setup. #tbt #pnwestisthebest #pnwonderland #bread #baking #localhistory #nwlogging #graysharbor #loggingcamp

In the middle of the Second World War, while massive armies clashed on the Western Front, an overlooked battle took place between Axis and Allied forces... in the most unlikely place imaginable. That place was Bowmanville, Ontario. Watch our latest episode of Canadiana for the full story!

In the spirit of our upcoming Aug. 23+34 time capsule workshop, here is another related treasure from our collection. This report describes contents of a time capsule that was sealed with tar at 3:30 p.m. on March 8th, 1974 and placed in the north wall of room 5 at Mt. Erie School. What do you think was inside? 🍕💀💰🕸 ✏️ #anacortesmuseum #timecapsule #time #localhistory #mterie

#ThrowbackThursday to sometime in the early 1950s, when this photo appeared in The Bend Bulletin. Does any remember Mr. Wood, who is seen here with his dog Sandy? He was custodian at the library, and he's pictured in front of the old library on Wall Street, which now serves as the Library District's administrative offices. #TBT #inBend #localhistory #librarylife #vintage #vintagephoto #deschutescounty #library #librariesofinstagram

Visited Monument Apples Orchard yesterday.  Cox's Orange Pippin, Wickson, Northern Spy. Northern Spy tree is in a group of enormous trees that date back to the 1920s from the original Homestead.  This year looks great so far for crop load and weather.  #apples #localhistory #localfarm #drycider #terroir #singleorchardbottling #pickcider #humboldtmade  #humboldtapples

This is a picture that was sent to me of the original Bell Farm that I had printed and framed. Back then, schoolhouse properties were typically named after the family property that was deeded to the school. After the school's closing, it was usually deeded back to the original property. I travel this road almost daily. Bell School would sit a ways off to the right of this picture, down in that valley. For years, I remember very minimal barn remains being there, and also what appeared to be a spring house, all the while never knowing what farm it really had been. The barn bridge is still visible. That barn is gorgeous 😍

Today we had a surprise visit from Bill and Mike Clark, descendants of the Heald famly who founded Healdsburg. I invited them to come outside to see the Mary Elizabeth Heald rose. This fragrant rose plant was grown from a cutting taken from a rose bush Mary brought across the plains from Ohio in 1852. She planted the rose bush in Hilton (near Guerneville) where she lived with her husband Louis Ridenhour. Mike and Bill were delighted to see this remarkable remembrance of their ancestor. #rosebush #maryheald #museumlife #localhistory #heald #healdsburghistory #ridenhour

Have you caught @rougeit #whistle around the City yet? Hear it daily at 1pm for #getnorth2018

It's a hoot! The steam whistle on the City Library roof goes off in two bursts at 1pm everyday - exactly in-between the bell tolls! 😍 We love how @rougeit's installation for #getnorth2018 highlights the history of the city by bringing together its industrial history (locomotives!) and its medieval history (the whistles are installed on the line of the old city wall) #steamwhistle #locomotives #localhistory #newcastlehistory #newcastle #newcastlecitywall #artinthelibrary

This morning we were visited by the past! (Although the 1912 Model T is younger than most of our equipment!) Elmer Fox is 88 and grew up here before he was drafted to serve in the Korean War where he was a mechanic working on planes and helicopters. He’s telling us things we never knew! What rich history! #castlevalleymill #livinghistory #visitfromthepast #localhistory #millerlife
