Hello History Folks!
|Bell atop the Davies Memorial Library and Waterford Post Office.|
Our postmistress, Lillian, asked for help spreading the word about the light refreshments she's serving this afternoon in honor of Veterans Day (USPS will be closed Saturday).
I agree to put the word out to our history list because it's a opportunity to honor the veterans we know as well as those we remember.
It's also a nice community meet-up.
Here are a few other reasons to drop in:
If you haven't had a chance, come experience the captioned history displays in the lobby of this building originally constructed as a general store in the late 1700s.
Take a look around the entire space and you might pick out the elements of when the Davies family converted this building to both the public library upstairs and a community center downstairs off Maple Street. Don't believe me? lol. When you next see WHS member and walking tour guide of the village, David Morrison, ask him to tell you about the roller skating parties he attended there!
You also can see what's left of the community kitchen if you step up to the post office window.
Ah, Waterford, where our history is hidden in plain sight!
