The Delightful Homes of Jerseyville. A dear friend of mine recently bought a book about town printed in 1912. This page is in the "notable residents" section. Turning the pages of the book I've realized how many incredible structures my hometown has lost, but I'm happy that I get to see even more pictured during their glory days.
PROOF in Jerseyville is such a cool place and I'm thrilled to be playing there tonight starting at 8...even better, my pal @gaffers92 is joining me! It's gonna be a great night of adult beverages, fantastic music and good vibes on their amazing rooftop. Hope to see you there! #LiveMusic#drinks#Jerseyville#IlliNoise
Working from home today with @jacksonlaundrytri ripping 6x5min on the Jerseyville drag strip hanging on Jack's wheel, and then a solid run off the bike on the 1km loop 15 meters from my front door. Last really big day of training before the last race of the year @EscapeSeriesTri
Make no mistake friends, the Jersey County Historical Society is fully aware that Jersey County is an #Ag County, and we're proud of that, too! Several weeks ago, our friends at the Tri-County Antique Club hosted their 27th annual Olden Days Festival, a weekend dedicated to exposing attendees of the machinery that built #America . Jersey County made quite an impression in the world back in the day! We were (still are) agriculturists that made strides in our various pursuits. Take for example Colonel William Fulkerson, who built the historic Hazel Dell Mansion north of #Jerseyville and was known far and wide for his shorthorn herd. Early setters of Otter Creek Township were attracted to the fertile soils that proved to be excellent for orchards. We were even thought to have one of the greatest agricultural fairs in the American west when our county fair hosted its first exposition in 1868! Farm on Jersey County, it's our claim to fame! #jerseycounty#history#agriculture

These photos come from the dining room of the #Cheney#Mansion . The dining room is part of the original 1827 structure and rests above the Underground Railroad hideout. #Jerseyville native Clayton Brown, who bought and immediately donated the house to the Jersey County Historical Society, desired to have the walls of the dining room painted with the scenes of Jersey County that he admired since boyhood. This feature truly displays just one of the many ways this house serves as the house of all people of Jersey County. #history#art#Jerseycountyhistory
