B-W Trivia: On Which Corner of Brownsville Road Is the Location of This Toll Gate?
We will reveal the answer on Monday.
The Baldwin-Whitehall Patch has partnered with the Baldwin Historical Society to bring you a weekly trivia question that delves into our area's colorful past.
Pat Lombardi and Patty Woehler, co-presidents of the society, generously write the questions and provide the pictures.
Here is this week's question:
This is a view of Toll Gate #3 on the Brownsville Turnpike. The pictures are from around 1898.
The toll collector was Henry Simmons. Some of the men pictured are John Bauer, James Willock, William Litzenberger, Walter Hays, Michael Glacken, William Stewart and George Brezger. The toll gate was in operation until 1901.
In the picture on the right, you can see the house of Rev. James Kirk, whose family owned quite a large piece of property in the area. He was the pastor of Concord Presbyterian Church.
