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.
