1865 Memphis earthquake

The 1865 Memphis earthquake struck southwest Tennessee near the Mississippi River in the United States on August 17 that year. Soon after the Mfa  5.0 earthquake hit, observers said the earth appeared to undulate and waves formed in nearby rivers. The force of the earthquake felled and cracked chimneys in Memphis and New Madrid, Missouri on the other side of the Mississippi. Shaking from the earthquake spread as far as St. Louis, Missouri; Jackson, Mississippi; and Illinois. Apart from the 1811–12 New Madrid earthquakes, only three major events have struck the state of Tennessee, in 1843, 1865, and 1895. Several minor events have taken place as well.

DeFries House, Barn and Carpenter Shop

The DeFries House, Barn and Carpenter Shop are a collection of historic buildings located north of Baldwin, Iowa, United States. They are three of over 217 limestone structures in Jackson County from the mid-19th century, of which 101 were houses, nine were barns, and 36 were other farm related buildings. The stones used in the construction are of various sizes and shapes and laid in courses. The double end chimneys on the house are found on only two other stone houses in the county, and the DeFries and Thomas Slye houses have them constructed in brick. Also similar to the Slye house is the use of jack arches instead on lintels above the windows and doors. It is possible that both houses were constructed by the same stonemason. While the stonemason for the Syle house is unknown, Christian Blessing, who was trained in his native of Germany, built this collection of buildings. He completed the house in 1858 and the horse barn in 1862. The carpenter shop was built in either 1858 or 1862.
