About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

You are close

The site is off the Google map below, to the left. The actual location is where Watts Passage (Route 600 from the left/west) intersects Route 20. You will see Route 20 makes about a 90 degree right turn there. North/above the intersection is the location of the former store and whatever might be left of the old tavern. I remember the store when it was in operation, but I can't identify which structure it is on the map. I think it is the big one that you would run into if you failed to negotiate the curve! I had never heard of the tavern.

I think the foundation is still there

Based on the map here I got this google satellite image. Am I close?
