News Monday, April 19, 1999 Through Sunday, April 25, 1999

Don't forget, just skip buying gas on April 30, 1999. This is the reason.

THE GREAT "GAS OUT"

It's time we did something about the price of gasoline in America! We are all sick and tired of high prices when there are literally millions of gallons in storage. Know what I found out? If there was just ONE day when no one purchased any gasoline, prices would drop drastically. The so-called oil cartel has decided to slow production by some 2 million barrels per day to drive up the price. I have decided to see how many Americans we can get to NOT BUY ANY GASOLINE on one particular day! Let's have a GAS OUT! Do not buy any gasoline on APRIL 30, 1999!!!!! Buy on Thursday before, or Saturday after. Do not buy any gasoline on FRIDAY, APRIL 30, 1999. Wanna help? Send this message to everyone you know. Ask them to do the same. All we need is a few million to participate in order to make a difference. We CAN make a difference.
Thanks.

Adirondack Style
Outdoor Furniture

Two big events this week in the soon-to-be furniture business: The final table alignment for the table saw work station is complete. The next step is alignment and adjustment of the power feed system and out feed side. The other significant event was the conversion of the original DOS based database used to drive the production end of things, and track the sales and tax end of things. The system needs plenty of work to update it, but should be ready to print test production sheets by the end of this week. The production sheets track exactly how much material goes into a batch of furniture, and provide a checklist for each millwork process, so the right number of parts of the right size and shape are made. A typical batch of furniture in the shop may have six to seven hundred pieces in it. A batch with tables and footrests, and a few loveseats and a spooning chair, may have sixty or seventy different parts and over a hundred pieces of some parts.

With some new graphics software available, enhanced and modified digital pics will start finding their way into the Piper, and Furniture websites. The Website should be fairly well fleshed out when the first batches of furniture are ready for sale in a month or so.

Green Side Up

What should be a period of heavy growth for the Sugar Snap Peas is turning into a disappointment. The first two cages of peas have not germinated yet, which means the replacement seeds going in tomorrow are about a month behind schedule. All of the February work was wasted. The most likely problem was insects. Root maggots are very active early in the season, and probably ate most of the seeds. Another possibility is fungus. The seeds should have been drenched with diazanon, and sprinkled with captan to prevent fungus. It's not like I didn't already know this but... The second two cages aren't doing much better. The first crop this year may be kind of stingy, and the seeds for the second crop have been sacrificed to replant the first. Not a good pea situation.
For more ambitious gardeners:

Should be planted
Beets, Broccoli, Cabbage, Cauliflower, Carrots, Corn, Dill, Endive, Jerusalem Artichokes, Kohlrabi, Leeks, Lettuce, Onions, Parsnips, Peas, Potatoes, Radishes, Spinach, Strawberries and Swiss Chard.


Start From Seed
Cucumbers, Eggplants, Melons, New Zealand Spinach, Okra, Onions, Peppers, Squash, Tomatoes.

So What's Attawaugan?

Entering the village of Attawaugan from the north, there's nothing more than a sign to celebrate the event.



Attawaugan owes it's existence to the Attawaugan Company of Norwich Connecticut. The company opened a mill here in the early 1840s. Parts of the original mill's stone footings are still visible near the river. Caution must be used when walking around the grounds. A site plan I have shows many abandoned raceways, channels and cisterns used to channel and store water for the original mill. Most of these may still have water flowing through them, and their timber roofs are surely rotted and ready to collapse
.


The mill entrance viewed from the west. The tower held a 30,000 gallon tank until recently when it was removed to keep it from blowing down. The mill covers 130,000 square feet, on six levels. It has a 1200 foot deep well to provide service water, and also supplies the Powdrell and Alexander Memorial Water Company with water, which they sell to me and my neighbors. There's a two mile long 6 or 8 inch pipe to a 600,000 gallon reservoir in Ballouville. The reservoir provided the water power for the Ballouville mill as well as backup water for the Attawaugan mill.



A view from the north showing the chimney from the boiler room, a building nearly as big as the church that provided heat and steam for machinery.
.
This mill was somewhat unique in that it contained all of the machinery to turn raw bales of cotton into finished curtains ready to sell to the world. All under one roof, including the sweat shop in the attic.

Entering the village from Dayville to the south, the first significant building is the old grist mill, now turned into a house. This is rumored to be the same mill Horatio Brown used as a Sunday school before the Attawaugan church was built. .



The "mill" from the north. This building seems a little far from water, but there's evidence of another stream behind the "Superette" that may have run past the mill to the river.
.


We even have a store in town. Got almost everything ya could want right here at the Superette, Andy's that is...



Looking east from route 12 by the Superette, you can see the location of the original road to Ballouville. The road ran through what are now the back yards of the old mill houses past the church, and turned north to Ballouville. Church Street is now located where everyone's outhouses used to be and mine still is.
.


Attawaugan even has a fire house, with fire trucks and everything.



Entering the village from Ballouville to the north, the first beautiful sight as you round the bend in the road is my house, formerly the United Methodist Church of Attawaugan. Still watching over the village as it has for nearly 130 years.
.


Looking down Church Street, one can still imagine horse carts rolling by. The road wasn't put through until the thirties.




So That's Attawaugan!

A History Of The Ocean County Seashore
Part Three

   A Salem newspaper story in 1869 reported that "Mr. Boynton who has saved so many lives this season, was offered 50 cents by a gentlemen after he'd been safely dragged ashore. Mr. Boynton gave him back 49 cents, remarking he didn't usually accept more than a life was worth.

   In 1865, twelve bathers drowned in Atlantic City. By 1884 they had paid lifeguards. Twenty-five of them. That is also the year in which the burst big raised boardwalk was built in Atlantic City. Earlier, boards were just laid on the sand between bathhouse and ocean.

   Horner's Boarding house was built by Philadelphians on Long Beach Island in the 1830s. It was, according to a letter writer, "Made for good cheer and free and easy comforts without any attempt at elegance. Floors not planed and sidewalks rough boards, ceiling white washed. But liquor and food good."

   Bathers had to walk half a mile to the ocean across the sand, and ladies rode in a cart.

   This place and others too, of course, also catered to duck hunters and fisherman. Duck hunters liked the wonderful Barnegat Bay Sneakbox. Bayard Randolph Kraft in his "Under Barnegat's Beam", comments that on the day the airship "Akron" went down in a severe storm in 1933, he was 20 miles away from there in the Bay in his Sneakbox, snug and secure.

   The coming of the railroads caused a sharp increase in population, and enhanced the revenue of the seashore resorts.

   In 1866 a spur of the Delaware and Raritan Line was run into Manchester (now Oakhurst) and hence to Toms River in 1871, and in the same year down to Forked River and Waretown. In 1871 a line was completed from Whiting to Tuckerton, and in 1872 a short line from there to Little Egg Harbor Bay with a connection with a steamboat to Long Beach Island. By 1883 there was a line up the beach to Beach Haven, Harvey Cedars and Barnegat City (light).

   In 1883 the Pennsylvania Railroad reached the South bank of the Toms River, and crossed Barnegat Bay on a trestle to Seaside Park. Shortly thereafter it linked up with the New York and Long Branch Railroad in Bay Head.

   A railroad bridge was built from Manahawkin to Long Beach (at Ship Bottom) in 1885-86 so that the North end of the island had a direct Link with the mainland.

   Squan Village (Point Pleasant Beach) had some tourist trade before the railroad reached then in 1878.

   You could o from New York City by steamboat to Eatontown, and then by stage to Shark River, New Bedford, and Squan Village for eighty-seven and a half cents.

   The impact of the railroads on shore population is clear. The four shore counties had only 55,700 people in 1850 and 111,000 in 1885.

   Atlantic City had 700 people in 1860 and 28,000 by 1900.



And that's it for part Three.

Here's the Church


The following is the third part of "The United Attawaugan Methodist Church 1870-1970 100th Anniversary", a history of the church produced by the members for the centennial anniversary. You'll read it here exactly as it was written then.


Early Days Of First Church At Attawaugan

Described by Horatio Brown of Putnam

Established in 1870 with Rev. Nelson Goodrich as the minister

Rally Day Service - Part Two

After the Sunday School had been held in the gristmill for a considerable time, these quarters became too crowded, so one day Mr. Brown Said to Mr. Straight, then the manager of the store, I'd like a layoff. What for? Well, I want to go down to Norwich to see if Mr. Norton and Mr. Blackstone won't put up some kind of shack * for us to use for our Sunday School.

Mr. Brown took the earliest train from Dayville next morning and arrived at the offices of the Attawaugan Co. in Norwich before the owners had gotten down town. The janitor bade him to be seated and presently Mr. Blackstone arrived. Hello, Brownie, said he, how is it you are down here so early in the morning? Brown explained the situation to him fully. Mr. Blackstone listened attentively and said Mr. Norton will be in soon and I want you to tell him exactly what you have told me. The latter gentleman upon his arrival greeted Brown pleasantly, and as he heard of the need, turned to his partner, and asked "What do you think of it?" I guess we ought to do something.

Mr. Norton agreed, and finally said "You go back and raise three hundred dollars, and we'll put up a building." Mr. Brown said he came back to Attawaugan feeling as if he was walking on air. He hustled about and inside of two weeks the three hundred dollars was all pledged.

Mr. Norton came up to the village about that time. Going into the store, he walked over to the counter behind which the clerk Mr. Brown was arranging goods upon the shelves and accosted him with, Well Brownie, how much of the three hundred have you raised? "Got it all." "What!" Yes, it is all pledged. Mr. Norton summoned him out of the store with Mr. Straight's permission, and took him and one or two others over to the nearby lot where the church edifice now stands, and said "How will this spot do?" Finest in town replied Brown "Now" said Mr. Norton, take this spade and turn up the first spade full of earth. Brown did so and saw Mr. Norton writing on a piece of paper and heard him say "This day Horatio A. Brown turned up the first shovelful earth where shall be laid the cornerstone upon which be erected a church dedicated to the worship of the Almighty God."

The building Mr. Norton then had staked out was much larger than Mr. Brown had hoped for. Finally, Mr. Norton said "Now you'll want a little ell in the rear for your band room." ** Mr. Brown spoke of a band of eighteen pieces which had been formed.

The Church was built and dedicated in the autumn of 1870. The Reverend Daniel Merman, D.D. of the Second Congregationalist Church, Norwich, preaching the sermon.

It was an open question as to whether it should be union or a denominational church at first, as there were Congregationalists, Baptists, Methodists, Episcopalians and others in the community. Mr. brown was appointed to draw up a "Union Creed." He searched among the articles of the various denominations, and evolved a more or less theological mixture which he presented to the committee. But, he added, I have canvasses the neighborhood pretty thoroughly and I find there a three Methodists to one of any other denomination, and I move we apply to the Methodist conference for a pastor to be appointed here. This motion was carried with scarce a dissenting vote, and Mr. Brown went to the stove and cast his voluminous theology to the flame.

Though Mr. Brown was and is a good Baptist, It is evident he was not "hard-shell," another good Baptist, Joseph Wheaton, became the first Sunday School superintendent in the new church.

Rev. Nelson Goodrich was the first Methodist minister appointed to take charge of the new church in 1871. He was followed by W. W. Ellis, during whose three years pastorate there was quite an important revival, as there was also in the succeeding pastorate of Rev. J. O. Dodge, in 1875. The latter died two years since in Norwichtown, where he had resided for a number of years.

The Attawaugan Co. has owned the church and parsonage property and they maintain it still, furnishing heat, light and janitor for the church ***, giving the parsonage and running water free of rent, besides contributing annual sums towards the pastors salary.

In 1896, Mr. Norton's daughter, who resided in Norwich, gave a bell weighing 2,250 pounds to the church in memory of her father, the late Henry Norton, who was treasurer of the Attawaugan Co. up to the time of his death. During the summer of 1896 the church edifice was greatly improved, inside and out. Then the church was so remodeled in the interior as to give two new classrooms, instead of one small library room, and the whole church was carpeted and newly painted and frescoed.


Next issue: The first world war breaks up Sarah Alberta Caffrey's
Sunday school Class.


* Shack? Turned out to be quite a shack. I never thought I'd be living in a shack.
** Band room. What was originally the band room is now my living room and the
    space that will be the master bedroom, but is now the gym. The original band
    room was expanded earlier this century and now includes the dining room,
    kitchen and master bath room. The work was done some time between 1917 and
    1921.
*** Wouldn't that be nice?

Here's The Steeple


This will eventually be a pictorial study of steeples, bell towers, and other architectural curiosities.

First Society, Putnam

Saint Ann's Church. About a mile north in Ballouville, just on the other side of the Five Mile River bridge. This is a small steeple for the size of the building, but is very well proportioned, and pleasing to the eye.

A great steeple. Just north and west of Ballouville. This building, according to the plaque on the wall, is the First Society building. It sits at the southern end of what was obviously a town green over a hundred years ago. There never seems to be any activity here, but the building is well maintained. I feel that this is one of the most beautiful buildings in the northeast corner of the state.

First Society, Putnam

First Society, Putnam

I'd hate to have to paint this steeple. It's one of the best in the area. The steeple of my church used to be open like this one, but was closed in when it was rebuilt after the hurricane of 1938 blew the old one down. A good reason to keep up with steeple maintenance.

This is the view looking north towards Putnam. Future research will yield a report on this little crossroads village.

The Green, Putnam

Attawaugan School House?

This building is believed by the locals to be the Attawaugan school house, from back in the days when Attawaugan was a thriving Mill village.

This poor building is Saint Augustine's Church. The original steeple, very similar in design and size to mine, has been enclosed with this hideous louvered structure that ruins the proportions of the building and no doubt howls like a banshee in any kind of wind. This seems to be the only church in Rogers, another Mill village just south of Attawaugan. Rogers is unique in that the Rogers Company mill is still in operation, by the original company, after 150 years, in the original building, with a few additions. To complement the ugly steeple enclosure, they added an even uglier foyer on to the front of the building as well.

Saint Augustine, Rogers
