A trip into West Virginia
I had to travel to Virginia for a conference and decided to stop at two historical sites in West Virginia: Weston State Hospital and Sweet Springs Resort.
Deerton, Michigan is an unincorporated community in Alger County that was founded in 1882 when the Detroit, Mackinac & Marquette Railroad constructed a station for a lumbering camp. A post office opened in 1922, and in 1926, a small school was constructed at the junction of Deerton-Onota Road. Today, not much is left in the community – most of the residences are abandoned, although the school still operates.
The Van Dorn Iron Works Company
The Van Dorn Iron Company was located along 79th Street in Cleveland, Ohio and is in a state of demolition.
Quaint Dry Fork House
On a cold and rainy day, we encountered a charming house nestled along the Dry Fork of the Cheat River in West Virginia.
