    43)  Squires Tavern committee meeting - March 31, 2001
    Ullmann family descendants present lots of photos, anecdotes, and records regarding the history of the building.  Kim McManus displays garden plot plans and drawings of a modular type period garden that could be completed over time near the building.  An update of the special use permit from the State will be secured, allowing the Historical Society to continue work at the Squires Tavern before the lease is finalized.  Launching the "Friends of the Tavern" support group was discussed.  Progress on the architectural drawings of the building have gone forward.  Fred started work on the State portion of the process to get on the National Register for Historic Places

  • 42) Ullman family support

    42)  Ullman family support - March 16, 2001
                The Historical Society has been in touch with several members of the Ullman family who are relatives of Johann and Augusta Ullmann, long time owners of the building and farm that is now part of Peoples Forest.  A wealth of genealogical information, stories and facts have come to light as a result of this connection with the family (some of this information can be found at on our history page).

  • 41) Research effort produces another key fact

    41)  Research effort produces another key fact - March 8, 2001
                Walt Landgraf's team of researchers continues genealogy and land records work.  One key fact that comes to light is the earliest reference found so far of a house at the site.  In an 1801 deed from Bennett to Upson, the house is specifically mentioned.  While this is the earliest reference to the house, it does not nail down when the house was built.  Based on a high sales price shown in a 1795 deed it is likely that the house was also present at that point in time.
