Welcome to Placeography

It was great meeting you yesterday. Thanks for the contributions, I just want to point out one thing, it an effort to keep a consistent naming convention we try to include the address in the title when ever possible. As well as spelling everything out with no abbreviations.

Rochester State Hospital, Rochester, Minnesota
would become:
Rochester State Hospital, 2110 East Center Street, Rochester, Minnesota

You can change a title by clicking on the "move" tab the top of the page you wish to move and then putting a new title in the "To new title:" field

Here is a Minnesota Department of Health list of closed hospitals which contains a list of addresses for many of them.

Thanks again!!


Editing Existing Sites

Hi Ula,

Regarding your post on my page; Let me look into that issue. I noticed too. I seems to go away if instead of selecting "edit with form" you select "edit" and then save it right away. It may just need to refresh the cache.

I just looked it over. It looks like I have some work to do to the template. UGH! in the mean time just click on the "Edit with Form" link in the side info box. Do NOT use the one in the Tab.

Hello Alkaissu!

Is this the link you intended to add for more info on the Kirkbride buildings?...the link you have links to Kirkbride Bibles.

FYI Todd Melby on his very fine blog Building Minnesota, reviewed this excellent reference book:

Brown County Courthouse duplication

Brown County Courthouse, 14 South State Street, New Ulm, Minnesota and Brown County Courthouse 1873-1904 (razed) the same? If so and it was torn down I would recommend to combine them both on a page titled: Brown County Courthouse, 14 South State Street, New Ulm, Minnesota (1873-1904) .

Hi Ula I see now. Different pages but it looks like the photos are of the same building. Is that true or are they very similar?
Also the following text should be in a footnote citation which can be added just by rapping it in <ref> tags

<ref>The Minnesota Historical Society holds many of the historical records, such as naturalization and civil and criminal case files, from this courthouse. State laws restrict some access to records. The Minnesota State BAR association published The First 100 Years— , which holds a more complete history of the judicial history on both the local and state levels.</ref>

BTW: you can sign your name and date stamp it with four tildes ~~~~
