Driving Around Belvidere . . . and beyond

Twin Mills of Belvidere, New Jersey

Driving Around Belvidere, New Jersey


Last week I showed you the town square of Belvidere, New Jersey, including the Shoe Tree Oak.

This week I'm showing off some interesting buildings that we discovered in Belvidere as we drove around the town.

First up are The Twin Mills of Belvidere: The Major Robert Hoops and the Red Frame Mill. 

 

The Robert Hoops Mill was built in 1790 by Hoops for felt but later converted to a gristmill. 

 

The Red Frame Mill was also a gristmill, but owned by someone else.

As a Belvidere, NJ website says:

For many years in the 1900's, the mill and the adjacent Red Frame Mill were both operating simultaneously and independently of each other as feed mills. 


I love the little matching mailbox in front, to the left of the window. 

 

At least that's what I think it is.

Hotel Belvidere was established in 1831:

We then drove down Water Street and ended up on the Riverton-Belvidere Bridge, driving over the Delaware River. 

 

These last few photos were taken from inside the car.

We found ourselves in Riverton, Pennsylvania, a part of Lower Bethel Township, Pennsylvania.

 

It looked like an interesting town to explore one day, but it was getting late and we drove back to New Jersey, admiring the Delaware River as we drove over it.

The bat condo photo (above) was taken in western Pennsylvania. 

 

The bird apartment photo (below) was taken by the Cape May Lighthouse in Cape May, New Jersey. 

 

Both photos were taken last summer. Ah, summer!

Walking Around | Lewisburg, Pennsylvania

Lewisburg, Pennsylvania

Lewisburg, Pennsylvania 


Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, is a charming place with a downtown that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. 

 

Famous because of the prestigious Bucknell University, the town is nestled on the banks of the Susquehanna River.

There is a converted and restored woolen mill that contains 125 shops. 

 

The downtown movie theater is a single screen art deco palace.

I didn't have much time to investigate the town, although I did manage to visit a bookshop!

Here is the inside of one of the trains. 

 

How did they learn the functions of the different knobs? They look so similar.

Here is the switching control board, where one man was in charge for many years. 

 

It must have been an interesting job, as well as having great responsibility.

Greenville, Pennsylvania - looks like old times

dirt road

I was in rural Greenville, Pennsylvania (not far from the Ohio border) a few months ago. These small country towns look almost unchanged in some aspects as they did many years ago.

If I Photoshop the first photo below and make it black and white, it looks like the photo was taken 50 or more years ago:

I love using Photoshop, although I'm still a relative newbie. 

 

I took the photo below, which was taken at a distance, and in color:


House

Then I cropped the photo, showing only the logs, resized the cropped part and made it black and white:


stacked logs

A little blurry, but I'm still learning . . .
