"The Drake Well Museum and Park is a museum that interprets the birth of the American oil industry in 1859 by "Colonel" Edwin Drake along the banks of Oil Creek in Cherrytree Township, Venango County, Pennsylvania in the United States"

Sherman Memorial Lighthouse, Tionesta, PA

It was pouring down rain when we did visit this lighthouse in Tionesta, Pennsylvania ...it is called the Sherman Memorial Lighthouse. if you would like to visit: 5 Lighthouse Island, Tionesta, PA, 16353. we didn't even get out of the truck to take a picture, it was not open that day, if i can recalling correctly it was a Sunday that we did happen to be in that area of PA??! i am always amazed of how many lighthouses we do find that are not even close to water??! or they are close to water but not on it or in it?? aren't there some kind of regulation about that or something??! lol!! i guess most lighthouses these days are just pretty and for looks not really for finding ship, or showing the shoreline and all that jazz like the use to back in the day. check this beauty out in Lake Minatare State Park, Nebraska??! such a great state park, if you are ever out that way? enjoy! have a great day. i appreciate your comments. see ya again real soon.

St. John's Episcopal Church, New York

If I was making up a story or dreaming about a church, this would be very similar to the one I would create or write about, it is just so cute, I wonder what it looks like inside??! St. John's Episcopal Church, New York, I am unsure of the city??! I did try to google it, but no luck? ...a trip we took gosh way about near my birthday May 23 ish, 2018 we saw this beauty. I got a few shots from my truck seat. So pretty, I love springy moment. Enjoy! I would have never guessed that St. John would be such a popular name, but apparently in New York is a very popular church name??! 
UPDATE: since writing this post I've gotten more info: 110 Chestnut St. Youngstown, NY. 14174, Gothic Revival architecture, "St. John's Episcopal Church is a historic Episcopal church located at Youngstown in Niagara County, New York. It is a Gothic Revival style board and batten frame church constructed in 1878."  
have a great day. i appreciate your comments. see ya again real soon. Beth (…

Clear Creek State Park, PA

Clear Creek State Park, Sigel, Pennsylvania. 38 Clear Creek Rd, Sigel PA. 15860, (814)752-2368, what i really did enjoy about this state park was the ease that it took to walk around... some state parks are just not laid out well. you have to take a truck or bike to get around. this state park was great for walking, biking or hiking... a chance to watch birds or critters, folks fishing, and so easy to go from your campsite to take a look around all their antiques, old building and just enjoy the peacefulness of the outdoors. enjoy! have a great day. i appreciate your comments. see ya again real soon.

this chapel is within: Fort Niagara State Park, NY. i love history, and i enjoy reading about historical events or moments in our past and just seeing that the "Knights Of Columbus", had something to do with this chapel, is so awesome to me, wowza cool!! love it. i know a lot of folks talk about them, but it is a very hush hush organization. i will be soon sharing more photos from our trip to Fort Niagara, i did wish to share this section for "InSPIREd Sunday", enjoy!

"The French began building on the site of Fort Niagara in 1679. The third building project on the site was the “French Castle” built in 1726-27. As you go up the stairs to the 2nd floor, on the left is the “Jesuit Chapel,” which may be the ol…

G.H.S.P. Old Log Homes

This visit we found all these amazing old homes on the Grayson Highland S.P. property ...I am still working on the research ...hoping 2 find out more? On the state parks website is not much info. only chats about their camping sites and sort of tips??! Apparently these homes (land) were sold to the Commonwealth of Virginia way about in 1969. They were just rapping (or cleaning up) up a Bluegrass Festival that day were were checking them out, it was the evening after we had gone and rode the VA Creeper Trail, so we were super exhausted not wishing to really jam out but just take the time to see these beauties and takes some pics was a nice calming end to that day.
