Everything this family does is a class act, from this beautiful historic home to their offices farther down on Fifth Street to Barto's, operated by Dr. Bartolovich's son.Now THIS is the kind of person who DOES something, not just talks about what's needed and what SHOULD be done.
They sure do, but it's made to be a lot easier when you make Dr.'s wages.
Beautiful home...would love to see the woodwork in the interior.I hope what is left of our historic structures are saved from the wrecking ball...can you imagine if we would have kept Central School...it would be much more appreciated today!
I love this house and am glad it is in the hands of someone who appreciates it so much. I would love to see the insides some day. I bet it's spectacular. And I agree with Good Job that Dr. Bartolovich does a great job with all his properties. This is someone who really has and shows his city pride. As for Central School, I don't think the school district could ever have enough money to save it. Just bringing it up to code would have been a real challenge. And besides, look what we have in its place! Could anything be more beautiful than our Alumni Association building? And just wait until the high school construction is finished! It's going to be a real show-piece. Maybe if ELOnative comes back for the next All-School reunion, he'll be able to see the finished product and see that Potter Pride is back! BTW, ELO, are you really T.B.? You sound like my old high school classmate.
There's a picture of this house on the Cleveland Memory site that is an old post card. You can find it at www.clevelandmemory.org/eastliverpool/. Under the title there is a link "View Images". Click on it and go to picture 109 entitled View on Fifth Street. It's got to be the same house. Too bad Dr. B couldn't replace the porch and columns. I don't ever remember seeing that house with a front porch in my life time. What they did was fantastic. Thumbs up to Dr. B.ole nib
No...sorry, I am JP.Yes, the Alumni Association building is quite beautiful...perhaps the finest high school alumni building in the country! I remember our 20th reunion picture was taken out front. It was funny to see how everyone had changed over the years.Really miss the 'ol hometown...I am quite fond of it and proud to say I am from East Liverpool...having travelled all over the country and world courtesy of the Navy, there are many worse places to live! The Ohio Valley has a rich history and at least historically, an outstanding work ethic among the populace. Beautiful countryside...and it's the maple trees that make it so...quite colorful in fall and SO green when they first leaf out in spring. I always have to visit Beaver Creek State Park at least twice when I am home!I still look at the bottom of the china in restaurants to see where it's made...I always tell my friends if you see someone doing that, they most likely are from ELO! *smile*
I am a plate-flipper too! It's been a while since I found anything from the valley pop up though=( Bob Evans used to have local ware, but most is from Syracuse now.
Yiu are actually called plate turners and there is an actual club you can join, sponsored by the East Liverpool Area Chamber of Commerce.You will receive an official Plate Turner membership card and I think the cost is $5 annually.Contact the chamber at 385-0845 to ask about it.
Thank you to whoever put the link to that historical site on here. It was pretty cool to see the porches on that house..and I agree, the house is just kind of naked without them. There sure are some beautiful old houses downtown...too bad so many of them got ripped up and made into welfare apartments.
Although I love the "gingerbread" from that era and think the porches were beautiful, I actually think I like the house better the way it is today; you can see more of the actual house without that monstrous-sized porch on there.I wonder if the building in the postcard next door is the same on Dawson Funeral Home is in now or whether they tore that down and built a new building?Great pictures on that site.
Thanks for the ELO historical photo site reference...some great pics.So now I know what that "disorder" (LOL) is called...I'll hafta call that number. Thanks!I see a lot of Homer Laughlin china in restaurants out here in Washington state. My favorite Mexican food restaurant in Silverdale (Azteca) serves their food on a 13.5 inch (yeah...quite hearty servings) platter made at Hall China...I bought one from them and cook nachos on it.
