House Hide and Seek

This view of the Philip Snyder house along South Confederate Avenue was taken from Emmitsburg Road. Despite the majority of the house being obscured by those skinny trees, I really like this shot with the fence in the foreground. The little purple flowers at the base of the fence help to complete the scene. There’s also another wooden fence on the other side of the house, visible at center far right.

If you’re curious what the house looks like without the tree cover, here’s another view taken from Emmitsburg Road (not the best quality, as it was zoomed in pretty impressively, but still, it’s something!). Despite seeming abandoned, the house seems to be in fair shape at least on the outside.


Co. C, 74TH New York Infantry

Cpl. Valentine, who enlisted in August 1862, was wounded in the lung during the second day’s fight. He was first buried at the Jacob Schwartz property and later interred at the Westbury Friends Cemetery in Westbury, New York.
