If you look in the background of the picture, you can see the old Owens Farm, and you can see Shenango Road where it turns and goes up the hill. The picture was taken on the old Dusty Patterson Farm.

From LBHS Facebook page: "Watt’s Mill in South Beaver Township, Beaver County, Pennsylvania. The mill was built in 1798 and operated continuously until it burned on January, 14, 1916. Frank Steele, who grew up in the area during the early part of the century, recorded the following recollections of Watt’s Mill. "In the winter of 1912, my father and I went to Watt’s Mill with 10 bushels of buckwheat and two bushels of corn to get ground. [We had] to go down to the Little Beaver Creek, which we had to ford. The horses did not want to cross as the water was real deep, about two inches from the bottom of the spring wagon. Tom Watt and his brother Jim operated the mill. They also had a sawmill [although] I never saw it in operation. They would not grind buckwheat when the weather was damp, as the buckwheat would not grind well on a damp day. They did not like to change from grinding buckwheat to corn, as they had to operate the mill [empty] a short time to get it cleaned out. Stone grinding wheels were used, turned by a water wheel laid on its side, called a tub wheel. They left the water wheel operate continuously in real cold weather so it would not freeze. In winter there would be pieces of ice come through the water wheel. It would sound like a lot of glass being broken, [or] a bunch of rocks in the wheel. The door of the mill was higher than the wagons, [so] they had a plank to leave down to the bottom of the wagon. You would fasten a rope around two or three sacks of grain and they would pull the sacks up the plank to the mill floor. The rope was fastened to a revolving shaft operated by the water wheel. The Watts Brothers would take part of the flour as toll. I believe it was one eighth. They would rather have flour than cash, as there was a great demand for the flour. Mr. Jim Watt told us about being to the Klondyke (sic) gold rush in Alaska [and] showed us the gold watch and chain made from the gold he had panned. He smoked a corn cob pipe [and] would reach in one chute where the buckwheat hulls came down from the screen and filled his pipe with hulls and smoked it. It did not smell very good to me. In 1915, Frosty Cook and I would take 15 bushels of buckwheat and two bushels of corn in the sled and we had to leave it because there was so many grists ahead of us. We would go back in a week taking 15 bushels more. That year my father raised 120 bushels [of buckwheat]. He sold the flour in Beaver Falls at the Grand Hotel [and] also at a lot of restaurants. We would have buckwheat cakes every breakfast and mush fried every weekend."

Wollover Oil Refinery, Smith's Ferry, Pa. Photo CAPTION "County oil strike of importance occurred March 19, 1862 when the Emeline Oil Co., composed of P. M. Wallover, 1. M. Pennoch, and F. Darlington brought in a well at the lower edge of Glasgow. This well was bottomed at 585 feet and produced oil up through the 1880's. With the completion of each successful well in the Smith's Ferry Field, oil speculation and excitement became more intense. During the period from 1860-1875 it was generally established that the Smith's Ferry oil reserves could be found 700-730 feet below feet below the Kittanning Coal or approximately 600 feet below the bed of the Ohio River. Although many wells were drilled in this area, none ever exceeded twenty five barrels per day until a fifty barrel well was completed in March of 1877 near Ohioville. One of the most shallow and short-lived wells drilled at Smith's Ferry was the "Good Intent" which was completed in February of 1891 by the Excelsior Co. It was completed at a depth of only 72 feet and the total production of this well was a mere 400 barrels before it was abandoned."

Photo CAPTION "If you have ever been at the Ohioville Lock 57 park and boat launch and looked across the Beaver Creek to the other side and saw a large round concrete structure with an attached chute and wondered what it is. Here's you answer. At one time there was a large crane on that concrete that unloaded coal barges into train cars that were then taken to the Youngstown steel mills. After the trains stopped the crane was removed and the chute was added and coal mined at strip mines locally was dumped by dump trucks down the chute into barges to be shipped on the Ohio River."

At that time the small community was often called Rayl’s X-Roads or Rayltown, and is about five miles from the Moore family farm upon which I grew up."

Ira Mansfield (on left) and friends fishing in the Little Beaver Creek. Mansfield was a Darlington area industrialist, naturalist, and coal miner in the Cannelton area (Darlington Township, Pa). Local historian Michael Kishbucher: "This photo, dated 1908, is called "The Last Outing." It includes two of the three original Robin Hood Club founding members, Ira F. Mansfield and Henry K. Morse (a relative). The third man's name is Donnelly. Ira wrote that in the following spring Morse and Donnelly "were called to another world," leaving Ira and Cecil Hines as the remaining members of the men's version of the club. Ira transformed the group into a women's organization, promoting natural science and especially the women's suffrage movement. The first iteration of the Robin Hood club lasted from October 1865 (a few months after Ira returned from the War) to the spring of 1909. The Second Robin Hood club likely ended in June 1919, probably due to the passing of its benefactor. Ira's obituary says that he died in June 1919 following a brief illness. There is no mention of what disease he succumb to, but he died during the great Spanish Flu pandemic. The US ratified the 19th Amendment the following year.

From New Castle News ("Across Lawrence County: Schools in every township," 2017-05-28):
"Marjorie McAnlis McElwain Miller, 89, attended the one-room McAnlis school at the crossroads of Route 168 and Wampum-Mount Air Road along with her four brothers and three sisters.

“This school was built on my grandpa McAnlis’ farm but my dad, Bill McAnlis, owned the land when we attended the school,” she said. “We all carried our lunch to school and we always enjoyed sandwiches out of homemade bread and cookies that our mother baked.”

The McAnlis school closed in 1945, she noted, adding her father bought the building and used it for storing hay and corn.

“It was a good landmark for the people but in the late 1970s, it was burned to the ground, and it is missed by all especially the ones of us who attended it.”

Lawrence County Memoirs: "The ‘old McAnlis School,’ which was built sometime in the mid-1800’s and replaced in 1915. . . . The original building was replaced with a newer one-room schoolhouse (shown above), which stood closer to the road, in 1915. The school, which never had electricity, was heated by a coal furnace and had two outhouses in the rear . . . . The school was sold in c1945 and subsequently utilized as a storage facility (mainly hay) for a local farm. The building was destroyed by a fire on the morning of Tuesday, April 6, 1965."

1979 photo of Sam Moore's sister, B.G. Moore, in front of the long closed Court School in South Beaver Township. Sam Moore: "I went to Court School first through eighth grade, while B.G. did eighth grade at McCloy School. When we went to the school there was a bell tower in front (where the overhead door is in the photo) with a vestibule at floor level where we hung our coats and where the water urn was. It was also where the teacher took us to administer discipline. Our uncle, Charles Townsend, hauled kids, including us, to the school for many years, while my dad did the same for McCloy School."

We want to provide everyone with updates as timely as possible, but as you can imagine the situation is unfolding so here is the latest: The animals have been safely evacuated, most of them to Hookstown Fairgrounds. We will not be taking the animals back to our property until air testing there is completed and deems it 100% safe for them. We have access to a private company who will be monitoring our air, starting today. We are thankful to everyone who has stepped up to help us during this unforeseen crisis. Please continue to follow our social media daily for updates on needs. In the meantime, we are asking for donations as we are seeking to purchase additional property for our animals and more equipment for crises such as this. We would also like to extend a special thank you to Potter Township Fire Department who were on site to help us evacuate yesterday, and Hookstown Fire Department who were so kind and helpful at the fairgrounds during the chaos last night! Coincidentally, it was only 2 days ago that Potter FD and Beaver County Emergency Services were on site to discuss re-instating the much needed county Certified Animal Response Team, which will be a vital resource for Beaver County's farm animals in crises such as this one, fires, large humane cases, etc. Thank you, all, for your concern and support. It has been beautiful to see people springing into action to help animals and neighbors alike.

Pa Gov. Shapiro - Governor DeWine and I are asking residents in the red area of this map — those within a one mile radius of East Palestine, Ohio — to evacuate immediately. This evacuation zone is the same area as was announced yesterday evening and covers 22 Pennsylvania residences, many of whom have already evacuated. This is my strongest recommendation – and that of every public safety expert: if you are within the evacuation zone, evacuate now. Beaver County Emergency Services Center has been directing any residents with evacuation questions or needs to call (330) 457-0733. If anyone in the affected area would like assistance evacuating, they can call the State Police Beaver Station at 724-773-7400

Enon Valley should have been evacuated TODAY too but we’re not!! My concern is both my in laws have breathing issues already so now they fear going outside to get into a car to evacuate because they were not told to leave before the controlled explosion occurred and now it’s a serious concern that should have been avoided by everyone in this vicinity prior to this incident for safety reasons….

ACCESSION: LBHS-2022-R-0009_Darlington Polo Club


CAPTION
From the Darlington Polo Club: Founded in 1937, the Darlington Polo Club is America's oldest "under the lights" polo team. The Club began playing in the summer of 1937 when Cliff Braden and other interested fans retrieved a ball from under a car at a game in Zelienople, Pa. They began playing the sport in Darlington Borough in a very primitive fashion. Their mounts were plow horses. Their mallets were hand made, they wore coal hard hats for helmets, and used gasoline cans for goal posts. They lit the field with a series of floodlights hung from the surrounding trees to play at night so that polo wouldn't cut into their work day. Darlington Polo has a home field unlike any other in the world. For over 70 years we've played under the lights and keeping with the tradition of our club's founders there has never been a game on Sunday at the Darlington field. Our season runs through the end of August at which point we give way to another tradition, Western Pa High School Football.

ACCESSION: LBHS-2022-B-0010_Old Shot Tower
CAPTION
Home-industrial space built by Dr. Bernard c. 1820 for use in making silk and then used as a medical college. Later, owner George Youtes used it as a wagon factory until it collapsed on April 28, 1898. The “Old Shot Factory” features prominently in local ghost tales. “The Dustin mansion . . . was built by him. It is certainly quaint and unconventional enough, and on account of its extreme height for a dwelling-house, was dubbed by the people as the old “shot-tower.” It was also sometimes called the old “silk-mill,” as tradition makes the old physician to have been influenced by the craze for the cultivation of the moms multicaulis, or Chinese mulberry, and the production of silkworms and silk, which aroused so much interest in Beaver County in 1836. The old structure was last used by Mr. George Youtes as a wagon factory, and on April 28, 1898, it suddenly collapsed. Mr. Youtes narrowly escaped death by the fall of the building, as he had been sitting on the front door-step and had only arisen and walked away a moment before the collapse occurred.” (Joseph H. Bausman, History of Beaver County, Pennsylvania and Its Centennial Celebration, p. 812)

The Koppel Industrial Car & Equipment Co. was built in 1905 on a parcel of ground that was sold by Charles F. Mount to Arthur Koppel Industries of Germany. Railroad cars and switches were made here. Koppel was incorporated in 1912, named after Arthur Koppel, the plant's founder. The late Herman G. Wittmer was sent to Koppel from Germany to oversee construction of the plant. In 1919 the firm was sold to the Pressed Steel Car Co. of Pittsburgh by the U.S. government. In 1938 the plant, office buildings and all properties were sold at public auction.

CAPTION
Dedication of the Merrill lock and dam. The dam was built at the community of Merrill (now a part of the borough of Industry, near the mouth of Raccoon Creek, as part of the process of canalization of the Ohio River. Construction began at the site on June 2, 1892, several years before many of Pennsylvania's other Ohio River dams were started. By late 1903, construction was virtually complete; only the lock gates remained to be placed, as well as the necessary buildings that were yet unfinished. Within a year, the gates had been added and the buildings completed. Operations began on August 3, 1904; the entire project had cost $1,123,441.80. The complex was named for William Emery Merrill, an officer of the United States Army Corps of Engineers who had been responsible for the earliest successful Ohio River dam in Pennsylvania.

Old Koppel bridge, looking eastward from Koppel side. This bridge was a large and uncommon example of a simple span deck truss dating to 1915. This bridge was unusual because its center elevation is lower than the ends, giving it a sagging appearance. If the drainage system at the center of this bridge would get clogged, the deck would flood as a result of this design.

ACCESSION: LBHS-2022-T-0005_Trolley_New Galilee
CAPTION
Number 22 "the doodlebug" made its last run from Signal, Ohio, to New Galilee, Pa.. This was the last surviving trolley in Beaver County and perhaps the last interstate service in the nation. This picture was taken in New Galilee about 4:00 PM. Mr. Herbert Baumgartner (left) and Mr. George McClain, motorman and conductor. This was a self contained trolley as it actually had a diesel engine and ran pretty much like a bus on the rails.
