I like this one. There have been changes in the scenery. Thank you for the modern day pic.
No leaves on the trees. Winter time?
I had to look up the Knights of Pythias. Another one of those secret Washington D C organizations with an interesting oath.

But well known for their music and bands.

The Knights of Pythias are also old-time benefactors of The History Museum. In 1978, they gifted a nice sized endowment fund for the museums future archive needs. With current insterest rates being what they are, its not a lot - but amounts to about $2300 per year in returns for needs not covered within the museums county operating budget. Now that's worth "marching" about. Thanks guys...

Armistice Day Parade?
HR has the Heilbronner Block on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places, also known as the Knights of Pythias Building and a Knights of Pythias Cemetery out on Tucker Rd.
I would say they are very much a part of HR's history.

Knights of Pythias cemetery has been split over the years, and is now comprised of the County Cemetery, Catholic Cemetary, and Mountain View Cemetery, on Tucker Road, next to the Westside Fire Department Station.

Arthur B, I've run into someone who might be able to tell you more about that picture of the asparagus farm down by Coburg Rock. Let me know how to get in touch with you.

Is Asbury the furthest bldg in this photo? That is the church of my childhood. So I'm wondering if the original library is tucked in this photo as well. Looks like it behind the very large white bldg.

I think that is the Asbury Church, with the library set back from the road. We have several good pictures of the church including its original tower, which was much taller than today. I'll post it one of these days.
