    Batona Question(s)

    The north and south sections are both correct - odd I know. I believe the area you are referring to is near the duck pond where the trail turns right off the dirt road through the woods then returns to the road. I noticed this during a recent hike on the trail. I am guessing the section through...

    Atsion: Old and Renewed

    At the Lines in the Pines at Sweetwater Casino, I was told the plan is to open the mansion for tours possibly in the early fall. My mom said that she was told that back in the 1952 so we'll see - would be cool to see inside the other remaining mansion of the Barrens industrial age. :dance:

    The Old Union Church, Long Valley

    My German's a little rusty (took it in high school). I think it says "Here rests nicely" - it's inscribed "Hier ruhet der Lieb des Arnold Kleehaus...". I'm looking at the other stone which begins "Here rests in God Conrad Rorich, born 1723, died 16 April 1790, aged 67 years and 9 months..." The...

    The Old Union Church, Long Valley

    Interesting post! Thanks :) Mark, I took a closer look at the German etched stone. It appears the name is Arnold Kleehaus (it's etched Klee=haus); the word "gebornen" is also kinda squished in the one corner - born 12 April 1721. It is carved in fraktur writing. It's interesting to note his...

    West meets East

    Nice thread Mark, great pics. Whenever I find a brick, I have to take a closer look and see if there's a marking of some kind. I have to go back and look at the bricks I found again because next to the SB Co should be a circle with a cross in it, but I don't recollect seeing that on them.

    West meets East

    Last Saturday, I did a section of the Batona Trail from Batsto to Evans Bridge. Before the Bull Creek bridge, I noticed a number of bricks and brick fragments in the road way. One brick had the maker's mark visible - "SB Co". It appears this brick and possibly the others were made by the San...

    Know what these are?

    My guess would be chimney caps. Usually made of terracota and added a decorative touch to buildings. There is one in Landis Valley Museum in Lancaster County, PA that is shaped like a human head. Very cool find! Edit: Yes, they are chimney caps (pots). Here is a site for modern ones and...
