Here I Go Again

Here I go again, trying to find a picture of Elizabeth Oakes Smith's Patchogue house.  Here is a link to a picture snapped in 1890 showing Pine Street, which later became North Ocean Avenue, I think, and Lake Street. If the picture is pointing West, her home, The Willows, may be in the distance. Just a long shot ...

Also, the white church in the foreground could be the original Congregational Church, where the Smiths attended services and where Seba Smith's funeral was held. That building was later rebuilt on Main Street. The Tritec construction site is taking up this space currently- if I'm right in my guess.

Dear Internet Traveler,

Welcome to my writer's blog, started about six years ago for fun. Over time, the writing I have posted has ranged from personal reflection, to Long Island history research, to tall tales for my own amusement, to feature articles for local newspapers. As you can see from topics listed here, I travel in many mental directions in regard to interests. Click on the tabs and labels to explore my strange mind which senses that you may be having a criss-cross day. If so, perhaps this blog will distract you. However, please note that if you tell me my blog is beautiful just to get me to advertise rhinoplasty surgery and cheap drugs from Canada in your comment, I will ask the gods to give you a tail that cannot be concealed.
