Tennessee, Florida, Wisconsin[edit]

Hi-Crucifer, Tennessee, Mikesville, Florida needs info boxes. Is there someone at GNIS that can assign a GNIS to Mikesville, Wisconsin since the community is on a Wisconsin Department of Transportation Winnebago County map and would qualified for one? Thank you as always-RFD (talk) 15:14, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

I sent an email to the GNIS manager regarding Mikesville, Wisconsin; I'll tell you when I get a response from him. I've added infoboxes to the other two. TheCatalyst31 ReactionCreation 05:26, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

Illinois photos[edit]

I'm still sorting through photos of 130 sites from my Lexington trip three weeks ago (that's what produced Second Presbyterian Church; until I saw the nomination, I thought I'd photographed the wrong building), but when those are done, I'm looking to start adding more Illinois images. Last weekend I got through all counties that I'd not previously visited; I only got a few photos in some counties (in Fulton, for example, I got just a few archaeological sites around Dickson Mounds), but I've gotten at least one site in every county, and (aside from Stark, with just one place listed) I think I may have gotten two or more everywhere. Not sure how long it will take to get them all organised, let alone uploaded. I was able to get New Philadelphia; they had a sign giving directions to the publicly-accessible Free Frank McWorter Grave Site, although I couldn't get it (I didn't realise that it was publicly accessible, but I was badly behind schedule after getting stuck in a parade that morning and couldn't visit it), but at least I have good photos for one of the two previously-unillustrated NHLs. Now if someone can just find a good excuse to visit Principia College; they have a guard at the entrance and appeared rather hostile to visitors when I attempted to visit on Memorial Day. Nyttend (talk) 04:34, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

Great! I'm looking forward to seeing all those photos, especially in a few of the counties that had no (or very few) pictures. Good luck getting that last NHL; Principia College claims to be open to visitors and tours, so maybe they just look hostile. TheCatalyst31 ReactionCreation 04:56, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
I don't believe it: they have a manned guardpost at the gate who demanded my reason for appearing, and when I said that I was hoping to get a few pictures and that I wasn't planning on using them commercially, I was given the vice-president's business card and informed that I must email her to set up an appointment for non-professional photography. Maybe one of our metro St Louis editors will just have to go to a sporting event...Nyttend (talk) 04:59, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
Well, that's unfortunate. Not sure why a college needs to be that protective of its campus, but it is what it is, I suppose. I found someone on Flickr who has a few freely licensed photos of the campus, so that should fill the gap for now. TheCatalyst31 ReactionCreation 05:25, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

Saint Benedict, Louisiana[edit]

Hi-Saint Benedict, Louisiana. I had been starting articles about United States state legislators and felt I needed a change for a time so I am back to doing Nyttend's Zipcode Directory. Also Louisiana is a fascinating, interesting state-my sister, brother-in-law, and myself took the Spirit of New Orleans Amtrak to New Orleans and I would like to go back. Many thanks-RFD (talk) 15:03, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

Glad to hear it. I've never been to Louisiana, but it's definitely somewhere I'd like to visit one day. I've been taking a break from the NRHP and working on the ZIP code directory again myself lately; as you probably noticed, I completed Montana a couple of days ago. TheCatalyst31 ReactionCreation 18:58, 11 July 2014 (UTC)


Hi-Fluker, Louisiana, Husser, Louisiana-Nyttend's Zipcode List. Also on the list is: Pine Grove, Louisiana 70453; that one is in St. Helena Parish, Louisiana. According to GNIS there are 3 other Pine Grove communities in Louisiana-2 of them are in the same parish. I am not sure what to do on this one. Thanks-RFD (talk) 20:53, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

I checked the coordinates, and one of the Pine Groves in Ouachita Parish is well within the corporate limits of West Monroe, so it isn't actually an unincorporated community. That should solve that problem; I'll deal with the other 3 if you don't get to them first. TheCatalyst31 ReactionCreation 21:52, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

Nomination help[edit]

During your searches for Illinois nominations, would you happen to have seen anything for the Carithers Store Building in Fulton County? IHPA gives nothing at all for it, as far as I can see: no marker on the map, it doesn't appear when you get all Fulton County NR locations, and it doesn't appear when you get all Table Grove locations regardless of their status. Accordingly, I couldn't get the location before visiting (I ended up photographing every single lot on the western side of the village square, just to be sure), so the nomination would be really helpful, and if you know where to get it, things would be simpler than if I had to email NRIS. Nyttend (talk) 19:06, 13 July 2014 (UTC)

Unfortunately, there are a handful of sites that just don't seem to be in the IHPA database, even though they're on the NR. I've run into the same issue with the Benson Water Tower and the Madison County Sheriff's House and Jail, and I ended up having to email NRIS for both nominations. I'm guessing that the Carithers Store Building is in the same situation. (It might be that it just isn't listed publicly like address-restricted sites, but I'm not sure why that would be the case.) TheCatalyst31 ReactionCreation 02:05, 14 July 2014 (UTC)
The Madison County Sheriff's House and Jail has been destroyed. In Mound City, the old Civil War hospital is gone from HARGIS, and the actual building has been destroyed. In Table Grove, the Carithers Store is clearly gone (they have state forms for all the historic buildings, and they're definitely not it), and it's missing from HARGIS. I suspect that they sometimes remove demolished buildings from HARGIS without the locations being delisted. Do you know if you could request the nomination, and then let me know its precise coords, where exactly on the square it is? By the way, I note your work for the Buckhorn Presbyterian Church; I'm looking to get a photo in a couple of weeks. Nyttend (talk) 04:18, 14 July 2014 (UTC)
I requested the nomination; I'll tell you when I get it, which could be anywhere from within a day to multiple weeks given how NPS is about these things. I think your theory might be correct, though; I can't say for sure, but based on aerial imagery it doesn't look like the water tower's still around either. Of course, I've found a number of demolished buildings that were still in HARGIS, but they're usually recent demolitions. TheCatalyst31 ReactionCreation 07:00, 14 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks! Agreeing again with you; the Harrison Street Bridge at Charleston is still on the map, and we have a citation on its county list for a 2011 destruction. Nyttend (talk) 12:29, 14 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the update; I guessed in favor of that site immediately upon arriving, but there were several new buildings on the western side of the square, so I couldn't be at all confident in that guess. Today's the first that I've been able to start tackling the pictures from my trip; I just uploaded the last of the photos from a Lexington KY trip of 21 June, and I've been spending a bunch of time preparing for next week's trip to Buckhorn and other parts of southern Kentucky. The next batch of Illinois photos will likely be my last, at least for a long while; I'm preparing to be moving to Pennsylvania in August. Nyttend (talk) 01:34, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
No problem. Good luck in Pennsylvania! TheCatalyst31 ReactionCreation 03:50, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
Noted. I'm still trying to find it — not that it's lost, but I haven't yet sorted things by county. That's the next step; I should find it soon. Nyttend (talk) 12:05, 20 July 2014 (UTC)
Okay, all photos sorted, and I found the image in question. Might not have it online until this afternoon EDT, as I'll be leaving soon for church. Nyttend (talk) 13:50, 20 July 2014 (UTC)
Oops with those "L"s when I meant to type colons... You're quite welcome. I got the NR-listed church a couple of blocks away, along with a few archaeological sites and a schoolhouse elsewhere in Fulton County. Meanwhile, would you like the full nomination for Appleyard? It's at Indiana, like Illinois, simply doesn't mention its AR sites, and you have to look for them by brute-forcing the URLs. The "site.pdf" doesn't matter (change that around to anything, such as site.jpg, gibberish.doc, etc., and you'll still get the file), and the only critical component of the URL is the hexadecimal section between "r" and "N", here the 202a0. This improvement may not help our stats for long, however — the house is far from its original location mentioned in the nomination and in the Putnam County Interim Report survey documentation (I only found it by emailing Wesley Wilson, head archivist at DePauw University in Greencastle), and one of the recent pending listing pages notes that it's up for delisting. Nyttend (talk) 00:38, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the full nomination link. I had been wondering if Indiana did something similar to Illinois since you seemed to have access to all of its restricted nominations; until now, I had just figured that you had some kind of special access at IU, but apparently they're just all online. I'll keep that in mind in case I decide to go through Indiana once I finish Illinois. I actually decided to work on Appleyard because it was on the pending listings for removal. I came across it a few months ago and noticed it was in much worse condition than the standard NRIS-only article, but I didn't improve it then because it was address-restricted. When I saw it was up for removal, though, I figured I'd better do something before it fell off the stats page and into oblivion (until someone cleared out the category, at least). That article was one of the worst NRIS-only articles I've seen; it had another source written out as prose but not really cited, and it had a bunch of NRIS data output converted (poorly) to prose. TheCatalyst31 ReactionCreation 02:30, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
You're welcome. No special access; I just went through approximately 196,000 URLs to figure out what items were relevant to us, and of course most weren't — there are lots of state site forms (e.g. 2801b and 2801c, for Pyramid Mound) and tons of random photos for the Indiana Historic Sites and Structures Inventory (e.g. 1cd6c, a random surveyed house in Iroquois Township, Newton County), but almost all nominations are on there. I never was able to find four AR nominations: all I have for the Ennis Archaeological Site is a form that NPS emailed me; in addition to the NPS-emailed nominations for the two Jackson County sites (see list), I found state site forms; and there's nothing at all for the John D. Haynes House. My advantage from being at IU is increased access to normally published resources: early-20th-century published surveys and late-century dissertations for sites such as Ellerbusch and Yankeetown, the complete Indiana Historic Sites and Structures Inventory, which I've used for non-archaeological sites such as Appleyard and the Old Clarksville Site, academic journals for sites such as Swan's Landing as well as lots of Missouri sites, and scholarly books such as the ones I used for the Duffy Site in Illinois and Murphy Mound in Missouri. Nyttend (talk) 02:54, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
Wow, that's quite a lot of URLs. I'm not sure if you were using a script (like I tried on some of the Illinois sites) or just a lot of brute force to sort through all of those, but either way that's impressive. TheCatalyst31 ReactionCreation 03:51, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
Brute force. I used Excel to generate all the ID numbers (it was 196,608 total: digits 2-5 had 16 options each, and digit 1 was either nonexistent, "1", or "2", so 16×16×16×16×3), then a find/replace thing in Notepad to put on the remaining elements of the URLs (including * to make it MediaWiki compatible), viewed chunks of the list in a sandbox preview, and opened each URL as a new tab in my browser. It would have been far far harder if they hadn't invented tabbed browsing! This was simply the only way I was able to get several nominations, such as Kappa V and Glendale Ridge: they're small enough that they don't get published anywhere except in the NR nominations and in reports that are produced specifically for landowners such as the Corps of Engineers, and of course those don't get made publicly available. I know Cheryl Ann Munson of IU Anthropology, who's worked a lot on these sites, and at one time I asked if artifacts from Kappa V or the related Epsilon II were publicly exhibited at the Black Lab (thinking to photograph the artifacts, comparable to this image, and use that as the site's photo at the county list), but she responded that they were minor enough that any artifacts would be stored in the normal lithic storage areas of the Black Lab along with similar artifacts from other minor sites. Nyttend (talk) 04:48, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

Many thanks[edit]

Many thanks for adding the missing CDP articles section. I look at the Michigan section and I found out two CDP aricles were done. I had to redirect the 2 articles and I hope I was doing this in a correct manner. Please let myself know. Many thanks-RFD (talk) 11:08, 15 July 2014 (UTC)

Both redirects look good to me. Thanks for taking care of that! TheCatalyst31 ReactionCreation 17:58, 15 July 2014 (UTC)

Potts Corners, Wisconsin[edit]

Hi-GNIS has Potts Corners, Wisconsin listed as a locale-GNIS 1571849. However the Wisconsin Department of Transportation has Potts Corners on the Vernon County map on County HWY P in the town of Stark. Is Potts Corners another unincorporated community that GNIS missed or mislabeled or is it a locale? Thank you again-RFD (talk) 23:00, 15 July 2014 (UTC)

I checked the coordinates, and I don't even see any buildings in the Potts Corners area, so I definitely wouldn't call it a populated place as it is. It looks like the GNIS is right about this one; it might be a historical community that WisDOT left on its maps, but I'd like to see another source confirming that.

Kandiyohi County, Minnesota[edit]

Hi-Priam, Minnesota needs an infobox. I was going to do an article about Roseland, Minnesota also in Kandiyohi County; the GNIS listed 2 different communities named Roseland and it appears they are within 1 miles of each other. Which one? Thanks-RFD (talk) 14:10, 19 July 2014 (UTC)

The DOT map of Kandiyohi County implies that 650287 is the actual population center of Roseland, so I'd use that one. I'm pretty sure those count as duplicate entries, though; the edges of the built-up parts of the two areas are only 0.2 miles apart. TheCatalyst31 ReactionCreation 23:19, 19 July 2014 (UTC)

New listing coming[edit]

Don't know if you saw this, but the NPS has now put back a link to the pending listings page at the Recent Listings page. One of the pending listings is another in St Clair County, the US Courthouse, but its photo spot won't be empty :-) Nyttend (talk) 22:32, 19 July 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the note. The location is unquestionably right; the address on this house is 406 (you can partly see the numbers immediately right of the front door), and near the start of Section 8 of the nomination, it's called "little building on the southeast corner of Franklin and Union streets", which is where this house is. I'll revise the description to say that this is the site. I'd simply assumed that they'd weatherboarded and substantially expanded the original building. Nyttend (talk) 12:24, 22 July 2014 (UTC)

Soon after leaving this message, I adjusted the description to say "site", although of course it's possible that it's the same building; look at the Wabash County Courthouse, built in 1881 in the Second Empire style and never destroyed only remodelled. Nyttend (talk) 19:43, 22 July 2014 (UTC)
Hopefully I'll be able to do a bunch of work on the Illinois uploads soon. At a weeklong church event at the moment in central Kentucky, so I've spent the past three days getting photos (once this trip's all uploaded, we'll have at least one photo for every county in the state except for Elliott) and may take a bit of time to get those organised before I forget what's what. Nyttend (talk) 00:40, 27 July 2014 (UTC)
I ended up starting the Illinois uploads before working on the Kentucky stuff, partly because you're working on Illinois sites and would appreciate photos, while nobody's doing anything on Kentucky. I'm now done with the NR photo uploads from this trip; they will be my last for the foreseeable future, given my greatly increased distance from the state. Nyttend (talk) 04:35, 4 August 2014 (UTC)
Glendale Ridge is 1f45d. Note that this is not the NRIS name; they think it's "Glendale River", which is most definitely not the reading in the nomination form. For Riverton, you may benefit from [ An Archaeological Survey of the Wabash Valley in Illinois], although if you're closer to UC Santa Cruz, an alternate edition might be easier to get. You may also want to consult Archaeology of the Lower Ohio River Valley; I'm seeing lots of California results for it in Worldcat. Please note that it's been months and months since I had these books, so I can't remember for sure whether they're relevant. Finally, and undoubtedly the most important, is Howard Winters' The Riverton Culture: A Second Millenium [sic] Occupation in the Central Wabash Valley. PS, if you can get it, Excavations at the Stoner and Lowe Sites may well be useful (although it concentrates primarily on the later Allison-Lamotte), since it obviously pays heavy attention to Stoner; I don't remember anything about the Lowe Site whatsoever. PPS, this JSTOR article should be helpful, as it provides a perspective decades newer than Winters. JSTOR tells me that it's free to read, even though I'm not logged in with my university account; if you can't get it, let me know and I'll help. Nyttend (talk) 05:19, 4 August 2014 (UTC)
A Google search for "Wint" produced results for this book, which of course I should have remembered; it's been a while since I had it out of the library. This PDF is the Indiana Academy of Sciences piece mentioned in the Glendale Ridge nomination, and see SHAARD 22204 for a relevant site form; it's rather minimal (as is typical for these forms), but it still can be useful; see how I've used a site form at Pyramid Mound, for example. PS, see 2839a and 2838e for Glendale Ridge site forms. Nyttend (talk) 12:24, 4 August 2014 (UTC)


Really? The Dellwood, New York article has such little content that it could be deleted, and it would effectively work as a merge to the parent article. Even if it's a verified populated place, an article with absolutely no content should be merged to the parent article.--ɱ (talk) 01:09, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

Nice stubs![edit]

Just happened onto two of your stubs for Nebraska NRHP sites (Site No. RH00-062 and Site No. JF00-072). Although I wouldn't rate them as more than stubs, they're definitely good stubs, with enough useful information to make it worth a reader's while to click on the links. Nice work on both of them. — Ammodramus (talk) 15:46, 2 August 2014 (UTC)

Thanks! I write a lot of stubs, but I try to make sure they're good stubs. I came across those two when I was working on the multi-state listings; I haven't written too many other Nebraska articles, but you've illustrated the state so well that I might in the future.

Once I noticed that there was a place called "Tyewhoppety", my curiosity demanded that I figure out where the name came from.

It looks like there are thirteen CDPs that still don't have articles, so if you wanted to start those it'd be much appreciated. I can give you some resources for census data if you want.

BRING IT ON..Coal town guy (talk) 13:31, 8 August 2014 (UTC)
There are two main resources I use to get census information. This page links to data files with the area and basic population data for every area included in the 2010 census; here's the data file for populated places in Kentucky. American Factfinder can give you more detailed demographic information about each place if you search for a place and go to the "General Population and Housing Characteristics" table. Use the "Bookmark" option to directly cite those tables. TheCatalyst31 ReactionCreation 20:30, 8 August 2014 (UTC)

Info box question[edit]

Hey, we have a few hundred edits out there with the state name being placed in the info box along with the town name. I asked the editor ewhy and I did indeed take a peek at WP: MOS.........the answer was a it could not hurt, which is true...However, Almo, Kentucky, is an example. That would mean, we would have the state name in the title, the lead, the details, the article , the template and now, the info box 3 times minimum, including the state map???? Just curiousCoal town guy (talk) 13:15, 7 August 2014 (UTC)

The question of where to include the state name next to a community name and where not to has caused far more debate than it should. Over the past few years there have been several long discussions at Wikipedia talk:Naming conventions (geographic names) about whether the state name always belongs in the page title for communities. I'm personally of the opinion that the state name should be in the page title, partly because it's standard usage and partly because changing the convention would lead to disambiguation hell. I think it matters a lot less for the infobox (or the name in the first sentence); it's still arguably standard usage, but it's clear by that point what state the place is in so the added context isn't as necessary. For that reason, and because I don't want to start silly edit wars, I don't care much either way if the state name is in the infobox or not. In practice, I think I usually include the state name in the infobox just so it matches the title, but I make an exception if the place name is already really long or if other places in the area use the other convention. (I never include it in the first sentence though, because saying "Almo, Kentucky is an unincorporated community in Kentucky" just sounds silly.)

McDowell County Gary Neighbors[edit]

I did indeed find a ref which explained what happened to the towns. They are by specific definition a neighborhood as they became part of Gary in 71, as a requirement of Gary being incorporated. I misunderstood the idea od neighborhood, but Nyttend was patient enough to lay it out in a cogent manner...IF you are interested, I have the ref in the Thorpe, West Virginia article which I will finish editing tomorrow. They will not be listed in the county template, HOWEVER, I can link them from the Gary article and the ref is rock solid.Coal town guy (talk) 02:04, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

Great! Now that you have a reference, we can link them from the Gary article again, since they're a pretty important part of Gary's history. TheCatalyst31 ReactionCreation 05:59, 12 August 2014 (UTC)
DONE, redid a sentence in the intro paragraph and provided ref see Gary, West Virginia.
Looks good! TheCatalyst31 ReactionCreation 04:51, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

Wilroads Gardens, Kansas[edit]

Hi-The Wilroads Gardens, Kansas article was started. It is on your list about census-designated places that need articles. You will have to edit the article as that it was started as an unincorporated community. Otherwise you can crossed off Kansas from the list. Thanks-RFD (talk) 08:12, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

I added the census info to the Wilroads Gardens article, so Kansas is done now. TheCatalyst31 ReactionCreation 06:13, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

I Invented The Breakfast Burrito[edit]

Hi Catalyst. In 1997 I created the breakfast burrito. I was with a number of friends following a rather heavy night out & decided to cook a full english breakfast (eggs, sausages, bacon, beans & mushrooms). Upon realising that we has no bread to toast & accompany the breakfast, I found some flour tortillas in the fridge & decided to try something different. I wrapped the mentioned items into each flour tortilla & amongst my friends, it was an absolute revelation. The idea grew from there & has been widely copied across the UK over the years & now, clearly, the globe. I'd appreciate if you wouldn't mind re-adding this fact to Wikipedia, & I will be more than happy to have this fact varified from various sources.

NRHP photo[edit]

Hi, would you please consider undoing this edit? Despite the file name, the building in that photo is not the Ebenezer Gould House, but is located at 603 N. Ball St. in Owosso (compare with the satellite view and the listings here). I was just in Shiawassee County taking a bunch of photos, and that house is actually within sight of the Leigh Christian House. I've requested renaming of the file on Commons, and I moved the photo to the George Pardee House listing, but I wanted to bring this up with you instead of simply removing it again. Thanks. kennethaw88talk 03:38, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

United States Post Office template[edit]

Hi-I had been using a template GR|7 as a reference in unincorporated communities articles whose communities have a post office. However, this template apparently was deleted. Is there another template I can use? Any suggestions would be welcome. Thanks-RFD (talk) 15:54, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

I don't think there's a replacement template; all of the instances of the template were substituted when the template was deleted. Your best bet would be to copy the reference from one of the articles it's already in, or just put it in manually every time. TheCatalyst31 ReactionCreation 18:28, 19 August 2014 (UTC)


Thanks for the note; I've moved the article back. Unfortunately, I didn't see the gym, so because you've read the nomination, you're more familiar with it than I am. Looking for it on Google Street View, I was never able to find the gym, so I assumed that it had been destroyed, until a couple of days ago when I noticed it :-( I definitely would have gotten a photo of the gym if I'd known that it was there. I think I said that I'm preparing to move to PA; that's Thursday, so I've been spending lots of time packing, and my work with these photos is mostly writing up the image description pages so I can upload all 110 of them in a big batch.

Disambiguation link notification for August 27[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited U.S. Post Office (Napa, California), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Ram. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Brownsville, Illinois[edit]

Hi-Brownsville, White County, Illinois needs an info box. I started the article because there is Brownsville (ghost town), Illinois in Jackson County, Illinois. I can't find GNIS for that one. Use hatnotes for both and I not sure about using a dab page for the 2 Brownsville, Illinois. Thanks-RFD (talk) 10:32, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

Hi-Middlebury, Wisconsin. GNIS put this up in April 2014. Thanks-RFD (talk) 13:13, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

It looks like the GNIS added a bunch of new places in Wisconsin this April. If you search for all Wisconsin populated places and sort by "date added" there are about 15 new places from that atlas, including some historical places. TheCatalyst31 ReactionCreation 04:49, 30 August 2014 (UTC)
