ANTIOCH PHOTOGRAPHS

PHOTOS AND INFORMATION DONATED BY JODY L. CHESHIRE

OLD ANTIOCH
This picture was taken from the top of the hill above Mamie Kirchner's house (which wasn't built in the picture.) I had my grandfather Pete Ellifrtiz look at the picture and he said it was way before his time. If you look closer at Edna Mott's house, the white one of the the far right, you can see people standing by the picket fence. The way they're dressed looks like it might've been 1880-1910. My grandfather identified a lot of the buidings and I marked them in a copy of the picture. Please let me know if you'd like a copy sent that has the names of the house on it

 

 

ANTIOCH WOOLEN MILL
This is a picture from the back of the mill and I think it was taken in the 1930's or 1940's. You can see Mott's store across the road on the right of the picture.

OLD STONE HOUSE ANTIOCH
This is the old house by the Antioch Methodist Church. The only thing left standing now is a bit of a wall.

CREED MOTT'S STORE
The newest of the two pictures. My dad tells me he thinks that's Creed Mott standing in front of the door, second from the right. Creed was Edna Mott's brother. I think this pic is early 1900's. My dad and grandfather say that the right side of the store sold groceries and the left sold feed for livestock. The mill was across the road from the store.

CREED MOTT'S STORE
This is the oldest picture of the store. You can tell by the way people are dressed and by the rock chimney which was later replaced with a pipe chimney. The store sat in the lot that is now used as my family's driveway. I think this pic is from the late 1800's

 

EDNA MOTT with MARTIN HOUSE
This is Edna Mott, the postmaster in Antioch for a time. She's holding a painting of the old stone house by the church and sitting in front of the ruins. This picture was in National Geographic and my grandma, Betty Ellifritz has a copy of it.
