Lyons Falls Mill, Center Streat, village of Lyons Falls, Lewis County.  Gordias H.P. Gould built the first Lyons Falls Mill in 1895, after previously owing a saw mill and pulp mill on Moose River.  The Lyons Falls mill was built where Moose River and Black River come together.  In 1945 Continental Can bought the mill land manufacturered specialty paper and in 1956 Lyons Falls Paper Corporation took over the mill and put in a hardwood pulping plant, at the time the first mill in the entire country to use this process.  Puget Sound Pulp and Paper Company bought the mill in 1962 and then late the same year was bought by Georgia-Pacific. 1985 saw the mill sold again to Lyons Falls Pulp and Paper Compnay and then closed in 2000. (see Lyons Fall History Association Website, especially for old photos).

C
hurch, Great Bend, Jefferson County.  Scannerman writes "This looks like it could be in the Swiss Alps or the Appalachian back country, but it's in Great Bend. Such a pity to be let go so badly, but maybe someone will still be able to rescue it. I'd love to see inside. The insignia over the front door are intriguing--maybe someone will know what they are. I didn't even notice the light blue inside them until looking at the photos later on. The front doors fascinate me, and the door to the bell tower--the lock and knob are in the center of the door."

Comments from visitors:
On 7/18/13 Lisa Cunningham writes "Interesting symbols: I found this on google, thought maybe it was an triquetrum3 with the triangle added. The circle above is the symbol for eternity. But I guess we'll never know for sure. Beautiful church.
'The triquetrum3 is one of the best-known symbols of the trinity, and is considered to be one of the most beautiful as well. In place of circles, three equal arcs are intertwined and joined together, giving the appearance of one large arc. The intersections of the arcs may be sharp or rounded. The three equal arcs express the equality of the three persons of the Trinity, the union expresses the union of the trinity, and the continuous arc expresses the unending nature of the Trinity. In addition, the appearance of one large arc created by interweaving arcs expresses the indivisibility of the Trinity. Occasionally, a circle or triangle interwoven with the arcs is added to create a more decorative figure.'"

Howland Island and trails, part of the Montezuma Wildelife Refuge, Cayuga County near Port Byron.  Blocked off old bridge, a few structures.
The last photo is an old electric pole encrusted with vines, power has not went through here in many years.  The island was once used as by the Civilian Conservation Corps and later one of the buildings was used to house POW's.  The building is gone but a stone with a plaque still is at the location.
You can find information on how to get there and the trail system on the island by clicking here.
Some more info from the Friends of Montezuma Website.

Canajoharie, Montgomery County, Beech-Nut Factory. 
Link to Syracuse.com article about the closing.
Scannerman writes "Anyone who ever traveled the Thruway remembers Canajoharie's iconic BEECH-NUT sign, but after 118 years the big baby food factory is empty. Production moved to a new facility 20 miles away and the 350 employees will be joined by over 100 new workers. The company promises to buy all the fruits and vegetables that New York farmers can grow but tiny Canajoharie is devastated. Beech-Nut gum, peanut butter, and Life Savers candy have also been made at the plant."

This farmstead is on Rt. 180 just north of Robinson Rd outside of Omar, Jefferson County.
Scannerman writes "The right side barns/garages look pretty well kept up and that part of the lawn is mowed, but the poor house. I always wonder how many lives started and ended inside? It's sad to see a home just fade away; you just want to think that at least some of the hopes and dreams that lived there came true..."
