STREET REVISITED & ICE CREAM SOCIAL
Sunday July 13th the Epsom Historical Association held its annual
Ice Cream Social at the McClary Cemetery on Center Hill. With the
bridge still under construction, members had to drive to Deerfield
and take the detour to the event via the Echo Valley Farm Road.
The weather stayed delightful with a brisk breeze on the hill top
for the program "East Street Revisited".
The program was the story of Epsoms first settlers from 1727
to about 1764, and it remains one of the most popular topics presented
by the Historical Association. The journey included discussion of
the early history of our town - particular families and individuals,
homes and businesses, local government and other surprising notes
Atwood was introduced, and he spoke on his plans for the old McClary
House, of which he recently took possession. His remarks were greeted
with several rounds of applause.
