In 1923, this Girder and truss lift bridge was built by Western Maryland Railway to connect to Potomac Edison Company. It crosses the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal and the National Historic Park in Williamsport, MD. Trains no longer cross here, but the bridge is still functional for demonstrations.

www.loc.gov/pictures/collection/hh/item/md0741/
At this link, the Historic American Engineering Record gives the significance: The Chesapeake & Ohio Canal Lift Bridge is significant as a rare surviving example of a short-span railroad vertical lift bridge, for its unusual design elements to allow unimpeded passage of canal boats pulled by animals treading the canal’s towpath, and for the economy of its design. It is the only such structure built across the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal.

From Wikipedia:
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mayes-Hutton_House
The house was built in 1854 for Samuel Mayes, who sold his slaves as he believed slavery would come to an end, and re-invested his money in this house.

The original portion of the house has a large 54 foot by 58 foot section with an 18 by 18 foot attached wing on the west of the back side. The brown brick house sits on a stucco-covered limestone foundation. The front of the house, probably heavily modified in the 1870s, includes four fluted Corinthian columns supporting a pediment, and a parapet, presenting a massive front facade. The interior is less ostentatious. but well designed, with a central hall that continues through the house, a free-standing stair, and balcony.

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places for its architectural qualities on July 8, 1970.

From the article:
The house was built in 1928 by Edith Soper Hardy after her husband passed and left her $25,000 to turn her home into the one she'd always dreamed of. So she tore down the 1800's cottage on the property and built a small storybook style home.

Local historian David Moon, founder of PicNooga, a historical photography preservation organization, argues the house has historical value due to Edith's humanitarian work and her husband Richard's time as mayor of Chattanooga from 1923 to 1927. Edith founded the Humane Educational Society of Chattanooga in 1910, and was named director of The American Humane Association.

While the house has historic value, it has also been vacant and neglected for two decades. The home is now owned by the Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park, located next door to the prominent Cravens House. The focus of the military park is the Civil War, so they don't have the resources to maintain a delapidated house built 60 years after the war.

The Park now has plans to demolish the house. The Cravens house is in desperate need of better parking, so this would likely become a parking lot. Plus the park has plans to add landscaping consistent with the time period of the Civil War. Now, people who wish to save this house have one thing in their favor: the park doesn't have the money to demolish the house.

Triangle Diner - Winchester, VA - Patsy Cline worked hereTriangle Diner - Winchester, VA - Patsy Cline worked here

Thu, 18 Jan 2018 21:01:55 -0800

SeeMidTN.com (aka Brent) posted a photo: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triangle_Diner The Triangle Diner is a quintessential American diner in Winchester, Virginia. It was built in 1948 by the Jerry O'Mahony Diner Company of Elizabeth, New Jersey. It is one of the best preserved classic diners in America, with close to 100% of the original features still intact. Key features include elaborate stainless steel ornamentation on the exterior, rounded interior ceiling with hidden lighting cove on all sides, a counter with stools and booths for patron seating, and terrazzo concrete floor. O'Mahony was one of the most significant and prolific diner manufacturing companies of all time and is often regarded as the company that set the highest standards for diner construction quality and craftsmanship. Every aspect of the structure's form and function was very carefully designed and optimized. O'Mahony is considered a father of the American diner and builder of the "Cadillac" of American diners. His company's work served as an inspiration for other diner manufacturers throughout the 1940s and 1950s. The Triangle Diner is an outstanding example of "Moderne architectural features" that are representative of the stainless steel prefabricated diners of the post–World War II era. The entire diner building – approximately 43 by 16 feet – was built at the O'Mahony Diner Company factory in New Jersey and once fully complete was then transported by train nearly 300 miles to Winchester, Virginia. It has been at the same busy intersection in Winchester since it first arrived there, more than 60 years ago. While diners of this design somewhat resemble and are often confused with railroad cars removed from their wheels, these buildings were never railroad cars. The Triangle Diner was listed on the National Register of Historic Places by the U.S. Department of the Interior on March 31, 2010, and was added to the Virginia Landmarks Register on December 17, 2009. The building is currently closed pending completion of a very comprehensive historic restoration, including roof repair, and upgrades to plumbing, air conditioning/heating and electrical systems. It will also feature an upgraded and enlarged kitchen in the rear of the diner building. The Triangle Diner is the older of only two stainless steel O’Mahony diners in Virginia. Of the more than 2,000 O'Mahony diners once built, only a few dozen still remain nationwide. Country music legend Patsy Cline worked at the diner for three years after dropping out of high school to help support her mother and siblings.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triangle_Diner The Triangle Diner is a quintessential American diner in Winchester, Virginia.

The former passenger station in Hagerstown, MD was built by Western Maryland Railway. Today, it is used as a police station, so you can't park next to it.

From Wikipedia:
Western Maryland Railway Station is a historic railway station in Hagerstown, Washington County, Maryland. It was built in 1913 as a stop for the Western Maryland Railway. It is a ​2 1⁄2-story hip roof brick building, reflecting the influence of the Commercial Style of the early 20th century. The building features overscaled Classical detailing, a stone foundation, and a massive, modillioned cornice with stone disks defining each bay. The building is also encircled by a one-story porch that has a cantilevered roof on three sides.

The Western Maryland Railway ended passenger train service to the Hagerstown station in June 1957.

The station was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1976. The building is now used as the headquarters of the Hagerstown Police Department.

Brown Chapel A.M.E. Church is a church in Selma, AL. This church was a starting point for the Selma to Montgomery marches in 1965 and, as the meeting place and offices of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) during the Selma Movement, played a major role in the events that led to the adoption of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. The nation's reaction to Selma's "Bloody Sunday" march is widely credited with making the passage of the Voting Rights Act politically viable in the United States Congress.

It was added to the Alabama Register of Landmarks and Heritage on June 16, 1976 and later declared a National Historic Landmark on February 4, 1982.

Side two of the Columbia Public Mural Project depicting a beloved mule, iconic of Columbia’s nickname “Muletown”, has been completed. Atlanta-based artist Michael Colley signed his name to the wall, marking the end of his work on the two-sided mural in Columbia, Tennessee.

“It's not often in a career, someone is asked to design not one, but two ideas that represent an entire city,” said Michael Colley. “They (the city) wanted to establish a larger presence in the community for the Arts and these two walls were to be a flagship for that endeavor. The fire station mural was side one. The mural for side two needed to light up the new and growing Arts District in Columbia, so I picked Cubism for the style, made famous by Picasso. I feel honored to have been part of the city’s art movement and only hope it continues to grow and grow. I look forward to returning to Columbia in the near future to help in any way possible”.
