Tuesday at 6! We love deeply specific history, and local history, and this has both! Manchester, NH used to be one of the shoe-manufacturing capitols of the world, and these two historians will be here to tell us all about it on Tuesday.   @historypress     @arcadia  _publishing   #historypress     #manchestersshoeindustry     #localhistory     #concordnh     #visitnh     #manchesternh     #authorevent

Captivating Details 🤩 This porte cochere, or coach gateway, was added to a c1890 home in 1894. The owners entertained often and lavishly🍾and this was the perfect addition to welcome their guests. Very few examples of Victorian era porte cocheres remain in our area today😞. . .   #chathamhistory     #thisischatham     #thisischathmnj     #chathamnj     #chathamboro     #chathamliving     #chatham  _living   #discovernj     #discovernjhistory     #localhistory     #njhistory     #historicalhomes     #histotichomes     #vintagehomes     #captivatinghouses     #victorian     #victorianhomes     #victorianhouses     #victorianera     #victorianarchitecture     #vintage     #vintagearchitecture     #archi  _ologie   #theamericanhome     #shinglestyle     #shinglestylearchitecture     #portecochere     #captivatingdetails

Many thanks to Steve Mockler and everyone who attended today’s sold out tour of Old City Cemetery. Here are three images of markers and quick tidbits from stories that were told: 1.) William C. Talcott-judge, jurist, and newspaper man-was known as a “reformer’s reformer” who created his own 39-character phonetic alphabet. 2.) There would be no Valparaiso University without Azariah Freeman and his brother Truman Freeman helped orchestrate the gift of the Cheney farm to Porter County to make Old City Cemetery the first official public burial ground. 3.) Isadore Kellogg’s parents, Cyrus and Sophronia Chase, ventured to Valparaiso in 1860 and were the first residents of Porter County to practice Christian Universalism. It was so rare at the time that a priest was brought in all the way from Joliet, Illinois, to conduct both Chase funeral services. The Kellogg’s 1864 brick foundry built on Mechanic Street (now Indiana Avenue) was eventually occupied by McGill Manufacturing and still exists today.   #pocomuse     #oldcitycemetery     #unionstreet     #localhistory     #localstories     #valparaisoindiana     #downtownvalpo     #indianahistory     #nwindiana     #williamtalcott     #azariahfreeman     #isadorekellogg     #portercountyindiana     #wearepoco

Painting watercolor in a adult learning class about Paul Sawyier hosted by the   @kentuckyhistoricalsociety   (slide for a gallery) Great opportunity to go see artworks behind the scenes in the permanent collection and travel on a riverboat cruise to see some of Paul Sawyier’s journeys in Frankfort. What a fun way to make immersive history. . . . I snapped some quick pics via my smartphone so ignore the poor quality of the photography. . . .   #kentuckyhistory     #localhistory     #watercolors     #paulsawyier     #pleinairpainting     #lifestudy     #suportlocalhistory     #adultlearning     #adultfieldtrips     #saturdayafternoon

  #onthisday   we meet a new character in James’ life! He record that John Lees (who we’ve met) and Mr Joseph Harrup came to visit him at Barnburgh Grange. Lees brought rather a lot of money with him - the equivalent of £8K today! - collected from James’ tenants, and James gave him the equivalent of ninety pounds in return 💵 so who is Joseph Harrup? He was probably from Saddleworth and his family name is associated with the cloth trade - we know that at this time, the industrial revolution was allowing landowners like Farrer to produce wealth from the wool of their sheep 🐑 . . .   #barnburgh     #barnburghandharlington     #southyorkshire     #yorkshire     #yorkshirehistory     #diaryofageorgiangentleman     #eighteenthcentury     #localhistory     #dearnevalley     #saddleworth     #potd     #onthisdayinhistory     #oldbooks     #booklovers     #antique     #ancestry     #familytree     #historians     #historylover
