FREELAND CENTENNIAL COMFORTER
Larry Maso sent a photo of this great comforter that was created to celebrate Freeland's centennial in 1976. It contains pictures of St. Ann's High School, Freeland High School, Foster Township School, Y.M.C.A., Refowich Theatre, Daniel Coxe Memorial School, Freeland Brewery, L.V.R.R. Station, Mining & Mechanical Institute, and the Municipal Building.
NAMED HALLS, BLOCKS AND OTHER BUILDINGS:
In one of the city directories that I looked at from the 1920s, there was a listing of "Halls, Buildings and Blocks", and another 1920s directory had some additional named buildings listed. Some of these buildings can still be readily identified because their names were carved into them and can still be seen, often near the tops of the buildings. In other cases, identification is more difficult, and in some cases the buildings are no longer there.
Eventually there will be more information on this page regarding these buildings and others, the purposes for which they were used, and the people or organizations for which they were named. Meanwhile, if you know of others that should be added to this list, I'd appreciate it if you'd let me know about them. Thanks.
