Around Newburgh, Indiana

Margot and I took some pictures around Newburgh this Saturday. She was looking for pictures that could potentially by used in Women's Club Cookbook.

Sort of a river theme for these first few pictures. This is the old lock and dam house. The dam was removed when the new one was built.

Here is a picture of the new dam and locks.

There was a lot of river traffic Saturday. We saw 4 coal barges in just a few miles of the river.

The Old Stone House or the Roberts-Morton House is located about a mile or so up river from the new dam. It was built in 1834. It is now owned by the University of Evansville.

This grandfather/grandson team were planting flowers at the main intersection in old Newburgh.

Here is another view of the intersection.

These 2 houses are located about a block up the street from the previous pictures. Built around 1900.

The one on the left is for sale - $325,000.

This is a store. Not sure what the history of this building is but it has been around for awhile.
