Oldtimer Returns to Waterford!

This month the Davies Memorial Library welcomed back to town a model created by Dave Morrison's grandfather, William J. Morrison. It's the Lower Waterford bridge, and its story involves travel to Massachusetts, a re-discovery, and the efforts of Dave Morrison, librarian Jen D'Agostino, and Fairbanks Museum director Charlie Browne. To hear the whole story -- and see the bridge! -- come to a Waterford History Group meeting (fourth Wednesday of each month at 6 pm at the library), or visit the library while one of the three is on the premises. Also watch for a possible published article on the bridge's journey by author Helen-Chantal Pike.

And stay tuned for more news about the work of Waterford's "Master Craftsman," as Dr. C. E. Harris called William J. Morrison in his town history, A Vermont Village.


  1. Enjoyed the 2017 audio/video interview with Barbara Douse. We lived in Lower Waterford from 1997 to 2005, and knew Barbara as a delightful, gracious lady. It is so good to hear her voice again. Jim and Kathleen Guyor

  2. Great to hear this, Jim and Kathleen. Please do stop back in from time to time, as we add other interviews. Barbara is still very much treasured by many.
