Ironically, the Fairport, Painesville & Eastern Railroad is being reactivated and rebuilt to serve an unknown customer. FP&E was a shortline which links to the Fairport docks to the busy CSX and NS mainlines that run parallel to each other between Cleveland and Buffalo. Interesting.

It might be a little bit of a stretch to call this area an "historic district," but the railroad museum is good idea--

City interested in adding preservation district for Painesville Railroad Museum

http://www.news-herald.com/general-news/20150128/city-interested-in-adding-preservation-district-for-painesville-railroad-museum

"City officials in Painesville are looking at adding momentum to a local group’s efforts in preserving and restoring a historic railroad station.

Painesville Ward 1 Councilman Andrew Flock is gathering support on a proposal to establish a historic preservation district around Railroad Street, the Painesville Railroad Museum that sits along the brick street, all the land north of the street, and an 80-year-old restaurant that sits across the street from the museum."




I didn't know the Lincoln Funeral train was shipped in on a truck and placed on a fake track! It seems so Disney-ish :-P  But I guess it always attracts a lot of people and in this case gave a lot of attention to the proposed railroad museum. But still...

Fairport Harbor Marine Museum undergoing significant restoration

http://www.news-herald.com/general-news/20151019/fairport-harbor-marine-museum-undergoing-significant-restoration

By Tawana Roberts, The News-Herald
POSTED: 10/19/15, 6:08 PM EDT | UPDATED: 2 HRS AGO 0

The Fairport Harbor Marine Museum is reconstructing the mast that has stood on its property since 1949.

A mast is a structure on a sailing vessel that holds up a sail, but is now being used as a flagpole at the museum.

“The mast is originally from the USS Michigan,” said John Ollila, Fairport Harbor Historical Society trustee. “The uniqueness of a USS Michigan is that it’s the first iron-hulled ship in the U.S. Navy.”

The Fairport Harbor museum, located at 129 Second St., houses and preserves artifacts related to life on the Great Lakes and other maritime exhibits. The museum is located 129 Second St.

What are they there to learn? How not to run a school system?! Apparently a batch of Fulbright Scholars from Argentina also visited in the fall :wtf: Maybe the Painesville Schools are improving after decades of chronic slackerism (oh wait, that was just me). I think they're still the lowest ranked in Lake County (because of--among a multitude of excuses--the large number of English-as-a-second-language students; though obviously a good fit for educators from South America). Who knows how good the schools in Uruguay are :|--


Once again this year, Painesville City Local School District welcomes visiting Uruguayan Fulbright Scholars from the  Fulbright International Scholarship Program. This year, the district is host to four Fulbright Scholars who will spend two weeks in February working with and shadowing teachers and administrators in Painesville City Local Schools and visiting area colleges, schools and businesses.

If anyone is interested there's a fundraiser to benefit the RR museum tonight. As you can see it's not exactly black-tie. It looks like they're really making substantial  progress on this project--

just a few pictures of recent progress of the Painesville Railroad Museum (formerly the old train depot--1893). They don't have much of a budget and don't know when it officially opens, but it looks good--

Did the construction project Lake Erie College planned for the old Harvey high school lot ever start? I am not able to swing that way often, but I haven't heard anything for quite a long time.

Anyone know where some renders of it could be found?

no, and I'm not even sure Lake Erie has even acquired that property yet. I think they are planning more dorms for that site, no? I don't think the immediate neighbors are too happy about that, but the high school was there for almost ninety years (although those kids went home for the day--lol). Maybe you know more about this than I do. Also, I think there was once a cemetery on that site before the school was built.

Just an FYI, Newcom's Tavern in Dayton was built in 1796, two years prior to Unionville Tavern.  Unless they mean "(formerly) still in use?"

PAINESVILLE, Ohio—"Brighter light will shine Saturday on the yearly Railfest banquet at the Painesville Railroad Museum.
Instead of temporary lights, new Victorian-style chandeliers will light up original hardwood beams at this 1893 station. Instead of boards and stained plexiglass, new acrylic will reveal the evening light through a massive bay window."

Damaged by fire, per the article. Either the owner didn't want to rebuild, didn't have fire insurance or the county gave him an he couldn't refuse.

this is disgusting. In recent years this was regarded as a historic building worth preserving. It became the location of a popular casual restaurant and a place where various community organizations met, mainly a senior citizens center, but suffered a severe fire a few years ago from which it was never completely restored. The county purchased it for practically nothing, and wanted it to expand and consolidate government services, which are located in a former Cleveland Trust Bank building nearby. In the 60's the structure was a Sears store (back when is was still Sears, Roebuck & Co.!), the interior of which looked like something from the Depression well into the 60's when it closed and downtown was being drained of retail as a result of changing demographics in Mentor. We shopped a lot there because we couldn't afford fancy Carlisle's (aka Carlisle-Allen Co) across the park--lol. I found this video of a Memorial Day Parade in 1929 (I posted this ages ago) in which you can see a brief one second glimpse of the building at 2:01--when it was practically new! (and when downtown was a lively place!--well before even my time :-()

Painesville Railroad Museum officially opens. Still very much a work in progress. I didn't think they would get this far!
