    A 1693 tavern where a 1700s tryst led to the 1778 hanging of 32 year old pregnant beauty and 3 revolutionary war soldiers who she coerced into murdering her husband.

    [​IMG]

    The tavern above was run in the 1740s by Bathsheba Bourne Newcomb, a beautiful, dark-skinned and wealthy widow with seven children. There must have been an instant spark of passion between her and Timothy Ruggles because they were married within five months of Bathsheba’s burying her first husband. Ruggles and Bathsheba, seven years his elder, were wed by her father, Judge Melatiah Bourne. From Bathseba's 2nd marriage with Ruggles came the 14th of her eventual 15 children. Born on the street above and also named Bathsheba, her father apparently persuaded her to marry a supposedly-abusive farmer to further his own ambitions. Bathsheba took a lover who got her pregnant and she coerced him and two other revolutionary war soldiers to murder her husband. They did and stuffed his corpse down this well. Bathsheba and here three boyfriends were hanged in 1778. There are drawings of the hanging on the attic walls of another old place - the previously-posted old Bigelow Tavern.

    C.L. Cooper Building, Eufaula, Oklahoma.

    From NRHP:
    The C.L. Cooper Building is historically significant because: (1) it is the only remaining commercial building associated with the black business district of Eufaula, Oklahoma and (2) its historic association with Dr. C.L. Cooper, the first and only black physician in Eufaula from ca. 1908 to mid-1930s.

    Shortly after statehood, Dr. C.L. Cooper acquired a lot on Harrison Street and constructed a two-story brick building on it in ca. 1915. His offices were housed on the second floor and a grocery was located on the' ground level. Cooper, the first and only black physician in Eufaula, maintained his office in the building until his death in the mid-1930s. He served not only the black community of Eufaula but also the surrounding all-black towns and rural blacks as well. The grocery, although changing names over the years, occupied the first floor until the mid-1940s when the building was converted into the Cooper Eastside Community Center. The building was used as a recreation and social focal point for the black community from the mid-1940s until 1972. Since that time it has been the meeting place for two black organizations Anna H. Cooper Chapter of the Federation of Colored Women's Clubs of Oklahoma and the Paradise Lodge #54 of the Prince Hall Masons. Both organizations have deep historical roots in the social history of blacks in Oklahoma having been founded ca. 1910.

    You'd think folks would at least put a roof on the old building. Without a roof, the building will degrade at an astonishing rate. Seems a shame to just leave such an important building to the elements.
