Item of the Week – May 24, 2013

IMG_2807 IMG_2806

May 24, 2013 – This week’s item is a ledger book from the Blue Sulphur Springs Resort. The ledger is from the 1830s and includes names of prominent individuals, such as John A. North.

Update: The ledger might also be from a store near Blue Sulphur Spring rather than the resort itself. The time period fit for it to be the resort, but the transactions make more sense if it were a general store or outpost. We LOVE that our “Item of the Week” sparks discussion and allows us to learn more about the items we have!

  1. Beth–this doesn’t look right to me. I do not think this is from the resort but from a store that was located at BSS. I own a similar one from the Blaker’s Mill store.
