Ghost Of The Beardslee Castle.
Thank You Beardley Castle For The Information
In 1781 John Beardslee left Connecticut in search of a fortune. He was a practiced architect, civil engineer and mechanic. In 1787 he arrived at Whitestown, New York where he built mills financed by the sale of shares, later selling his portion at a tidy profit. With the success of this project he was engaged by the state to build a series of Mills for the Oneida Indians. Mr. Beardslee’s construction jobs continued and between 1790 and 1796 he built the first bridge across the Mohawk at Little Falls, the old red mill at Little Falls, mills at Van Hornesville and Canajoharie, bridges at West Canada Creek, East Canada Creek and Fort Plain, and the Herkimer County Courthouse and Jail..
He settled at East Creek, about a mile up from the Mohawk, where a small town grew up around his developments. Known as Beardslee Mills or Beardslee City, the settlement thrived and grew to over 2000 residents in the early 1800’s. When the Erie Canal was built, bringing the majority of trade to the south side of the river, Beardslee Mills fell into hard times, later to be abandoned altogether. John Beardslee died in October of 1825, the same month the Canal opened. All that remains of Beardslee’s City is an overgrown graveyard at the edge of a cornfield and the limestone Beardslee family mausoleum in a stand of virgin pine along the East Creek.
A Brief Discussion About the safety of Communicating with the Other Side
Attitude is everything. Attitude is an expression of our worldview, and it is our worldview that we use as a mold to build our personal reality. We have had a number of people ask us about the dangers in seeking to communicate with our friends on the other side. Some have expressed great concern that they might leave themselves open for attack from angry entities or that they might inadvertently invite a disruptive force into their home. The words, “demon” and “low levels” have come up more than once. We think a better term might simply be “less spiritually evolved entities,” as this is what they are. However, “low level” seems to be the term that is most used and understood.READ MORE...
Our Local History
The Victoria School Museum
The Victoria School Museum, as a building, has had few but important uses. During it’s long life. In 1872, when construction began on the location, the plan was to build a standard loyalist style two-story stone structure which would principally house the Town Hall for the Village of Carleton Place. Included in this was a room for Council chambers from which the village affairs could be administered.
