It's where Bluffton gets its news!

Can you identify this location?

This is a tough one for those under, say 55. It's a construction photograph of a Bluffton swimming pool that no longer exists.

The year is 1955 or '56. Paul Diller, father of Jim Diller, took this photo, originally as a color slide. Jim is in the process of transferring the slide into a easiler to view format.

We believe that Jim Benroth, brother of Gene and Bob, is the man watching the work on the far right, in the teal colored shirt.

Where is this? It's on the Main Street side of the Buckeye. The men working are selecting flagstone to complete a wall that will become part of the divider between the pool (you can see it behind them) and the Buckeye deck.

The building on the left is the pump house.
