Unroom September 6, 2009

This is one of my favorite places in Homer, NY (what’s yours???). It used to say “Gunroom,” but for the last several years – definitely over a decade know, it has looked like this:


I don’t know what’s in this building, but I like the idea of it! -K



1. Flashback - June 14, 2014

I’m really enjoying your Blog, and I have a few comments.
First, you can spell, write and punctuate the King’s English and that makes your work FAR more enjoyable than what I’m accustomed to on the internet recently. THANKS!
Second, dogs and horses are indeed a health hazard if they’re not picked up after. Flies transmit diseases even if the kids don’t come into direct barefoot contact with fido’s calling card. Picnics at the park could be toxic if these laws weren’t enforced. Horses were a main reason many 19th century houses were built far back in their lot, away from the (dirt) roadway (especially in the South), and I have no doubt the consideration of having to walk down uncleaned roads which 100 horses per day have used, made the smoky, noisy automobile a preferable option.
Third, THANK YOU for showing the old GUNROOM! I nearly fell off my chair when I saw this great picture! I used to RUN to the Gunroom each time my family visited relatives in Homer, back in the 1950s and ’60s. No offense, but for a pre-teen kid from the ‘big city’ of Syracuse, agricultural Homer was pretty…’quiet’…and the Homer Braves Stadium, the fish hatchery and the Gunroom were my only salvations. Beginning at the age of eight I learned a lot about military rifles and Punt Guns in that wonderful shop for more than a dozen years. Just looking at the picture leaves my decks awash in hundreds of happy memories. I assumed the old bldg must have been bulldozed decades ago, so seeing it still intact simply makes my day. Altho I now live several states away, I fully intend to drive to Homer this summer and snap my own pictures of that Touchstone of my youth. Thank you, 100 times.
Keep up the good work, I enjoy your sense of humor.
