John Stephenson Home - Salesian Provincial House
USA

The John Stephenson House, now the Salesian Provincial House, was built during the eight years from 1862 through 1870.  It was originally the home of the John Stephenson family until it was sold by his heirs in 1901. In 1918 the Salesians of Dom Bosco purchased the property which now includes Salesian High School as well as Salesian Missions.

John Stephenson, born in Ireland on July 4, 1809, came to America with his parents and settled in New York City. At the age of 22 he established his own business and designed a new type of horse drawn carriage capable of running on rails. Once the patent was signed by then President Andrew Jackson, the streetcar was born.  His business suffered through many setbacks but eventually his business grew and Stephenson cars were in use through the Western hemisphere. At one time he employed 500 workers and turned out over 25,000 vehicles.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
