Searching for Photos of Local Landmarks

Posted on November 24, 2010 at 3:44 PM

I am hoping to find some photos of local landmarks that I can post to the website.  However, I need your help to do this!  Do you have any photos of local landmarks that you are willing to share?  You can either scan them and e-mail them to me, or mail me your photos and I will scan them and send them back.  Here are some of the local landmarks I can think of:

 

Fouse's Dairy outside of Marklesburg

Johnson's Store in Entriken

Entriken Mansion

Boyer's Ice Cream between Marklesburg and Aitch

Hoover's Mill outside of Aitch

Hess's Store in Aitch

Hoover's Store in Hesston

 

I'm sure there are probably many more that I'm not thinking of, but maybe this will get you started down memory lane!

 

I am also interested in getting photos of the schools, post offices, train stations, churches, etc. from the Woodcock Valley area.  Also consider submitting photos of family homes in Marklesburg, Aitch, Hesston, Entriken, Russellville, etc. as well as family homes on the farms and outlying areas.  If there is an interest and people start sharing photos, I will create a new album or two for them on the photos page. 

 

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

I added a photo of Miller's Store in Mount Union today that was shared with me by Nancy Lorz. It's not exactly in the Woodcock Valley area, but it's local to the county!
