We Need Your Help to Save a Little Cities Landmark: The Ward Building of New Straitsville
We Need Your Help to Save a Little Cities Landmark. We have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to purchase the historic Ward Building in New Straitsville! We have a plan to restore the building to its former beauty and make it into a public heritage center, and we need $5,000 to reach our first fundraising goal.

This photo shows the funeral of Ann Davis Ricketts wife of Benjamin Ricketts. They lived on Stone Church Hollow Road. Benjamin was the son of Daniel W. Ricketts who was an early pioneer in the area. He was a methodist minister and is responsible for starting this church as well as the Methodist churches in Shawnee and New Straitsville. This church was closed in 1964 and torn down. The first house at the bottom of the photo was once the home of Frank and Gertrude Jaynes Dishon. The white building in the back is the school building. Note the 2 story business building to the left. All of these structures in this photo have been torn down. Also note the horse drawn hearse to the right of the church.
