'Alburger Pond'
"Alburger Pond"
.. this little pond is also known as the "Deacon Daniel Hawkins' pond", or the "Kost pond." It is located on the southeast corner of the Alburger lot. It is a "kettle" formed by melting ice from a receding glacier. For many generations, it was a favorite community ice skating pond. It is bisected by adjacent property lot lines. In recent times it has been transformed into a water garden by the planting of various flowering water plants.

.. Nettie Furman Valentine by Beaverdam Creek
.. This is photo of Nettie Furman beside the pond at the old Valentine place. Edna Valentine's notes read:
"Trout house, carriage house, cow stable, and a little of the barn. The way the old pace looked about 1890. Nettie feeding wild geese."
This photograph was no doubt taken from behind the Valentine homestead and store, looking northerly.

Al Smith, Maurice Wertheim, Theresa Helburn, and others
.. Probably Dec 1924 at the cornerstone laying ceremony of a theatre, the new home for the New York Theatre Guild, paid for by the Guild's $500,000 bond issue without the aid of any rich "good fairies." The Guild's Board of Managers, responsible for its choice of plays and general policy, consisted of "a banker, a lawyer, an actress, an artist, a producer and a playwright"; that is, in the same order, Maurice Wertheim, Lawrence Langner, Helen Westley, Lee Simonson, Theresa Helburn, and Philip Moeller. Of these, Theresa Helburn, tireless and ubiquitous Executive Director and Mrs. Westley, an accomplished actress of vigorous originality, were the pair chiefly accountable for the birth and rise of the Guild. Finding the theatre "frankly commercial," the Guild has never posed as a society of pure artists. Time Magazine, 14 Dec 1924
