Please re-read the article... it said a FLAT year. That means no expected growth and no expected losses.So spectulating and crying doom is very premature.

Layoffs probably inevitable but speculating on a move out of state or country is premature. As for your other questions I would refer you to Rosanne Rosanadanna - her first response would be "You sure ask a lot of questions for somebody from New Jersey". Sorry to the youngens out these who weren't exposed to Rosanne - very funny stuff.

2 months ago from Historical Society of Quincy and Adams Co

The tour will be at 10 a.m. Saturday, September 6 at the Historical Society’s Visitors Center

The Historical Society of Quincy and Adams County will host the final walking tour of the season on Saturday, September 6.  The tour will begin at 10 a.m. at the Historical Society’s Visitors Center, 425 South 12th Street.  The tours are $6 for members of the HSQAC and $10 for non members.  Membership applications will be available for those wishing to join that day. 

Those going on the tours are encouraged to wear comfortable walking shoes and have the ability to climb stairs and walk at least one mile.  Many times home owners will invite tour goers to come inside and see their home. Children are welcome and are charged the same as adults.  Following the tour, participants will return to the John Wood Mansion and will be welcome to tour it and/or shop in the Visitor’s Center gift shop.

The September 6th tour will feature the Schott Family and their homes along with other homes in the neighborhood.  J.B. Schott Manufacturing Company began in 1848 in the Schleich Tannery at 6th and State and became known throughout the country for their handmade and hand tooled saddles made in hundreds of styles.  The Civil war had Schott’s tannery operating at full capacity.  The Schott Mansion located at 1421 State is surrounded by the homes built by their adult children.  Most of these homes are located behind the mansion on Kentucky Street. 

The tours will be led by Vicki Ebbing who was the former Executive Director of the Gardner Museum of Architecture and Design.  Ebbing stated “The First Saturday Tours were very popular during my tenure at the Gardner.  Since becoming a member of the board of directors of the Historical Society of Quincy and Adams County I volunteered to resurrect the tours on a smaller scale.  These tours are a great way to learn some in depth information about the City that we all think we know.” 

Reservations are requested for the tour and can be made by calling 222-1835 or email at info@hsqac.org.  Free parking is available in the Historical Society’s lot behind the John Wood Mansion or off the alley just north of the Osage Orangerie.  The tours take place rain or shine unless storming. For additional information please call the Historical Society of Quincy and Adams County at 222-1835.
