    Have you been able to find out any more about the names on this stick, mojjax? I'm still curious about the history behind it, and I want to know if I should start making plans to stay at your place when Elyse Luray show up.

    Re: curious mountain stick ?

    Yes, I've talked to an old man in town - showed him the stick - he told me who he thinks the J. P. huston guy was . I also found a graveyard full of stones with Huston on them , there were so many ,and I was on my way to work , so I did not get to check them all out (over 50 Hustons) I'm gonna go there tomorrow with my camera . Our
    library has a huge local genealogy section , but I haven't had a chance to check it out yet .
    The Sheriff came by the other day - our horse broke out of its fenced-in area and was walking down route 1 . so I've been busy fixen fences and stuff before the storm we're supposed to get Monday .
    A scrap metal guy came by last weekend and I've been getting a pile ready for him (copper ,brass , aluminum) .......busy busy .
    But I'm planing on donating the stick to the local Historical Society when I finish researching it ( I thank You all for pointing me in the right direction !)
    Yes , txgirl , I wish the stick could talk.......kinda fun though when they don't

    If any of the local papers or the Historical Society does a write up on it please post a link or a scan of the article. This stick has real, tangible history that can be connected to a lot of people. Not that I like bad things, but imagine if this stick was the only link to a day when a lot of people went up the mountain, and all but one came back. Shortly afterward they were all rich business owners and the politically conntected in town, but with a secret known only to them...

    Re: curious mountain stick ?


    To think that a stick could lead to a hotel and its owner, eventually to the following paragagh which I copied from:
    http://www.mtwashington.com/hotelinf...edit_id=38.htm

    "1944 Foster Reynolds sells the Hotel and property to a Boston syndicate. As the new owners prepare to open for the season of 1944, the U.S. Government requests the use of the Hotel for an international gathering of financiers from 44 countries. The Hotel is extensively restored and modernized to host the now-famous Bretton Woods International Monetary Conference. The Conference organizes a World Bank and International Monetary Fund, sets the price of gold at $35 an ounce, and chooses the American dollar as the standard of international exchange."

    An they think today's G8 Summit is a big deal? Interesting how events back then effect "us" as treasure hunters in whatever form we pursue our monetary, or historical interest.

    F.
    Quote of Sir Joshua Reynolds': "There is no expedient, to which a man will not resort; to avoid the real labor, of thinking."
