December 24, 1929

Tues., 24  Morning devotions.  A heavy snowfall last night. Mr. Tuttle does not get out until 10 o’clock. Ruth comes & Will Cotey brings her up. Henrietta gets home on the early train. All trains late. The State School plows out the road with 3 span of beautiful horses. Then the town comes & shovels out the driveway. Helen walks down town. Ruth stuffs the turkey. Still the Christmas greetings come in, also a lovely basket of fruit & nuts from the church.

 

Still plowing with horses in 1929!  The State School she mentions was later called “Weeks School” and was a kind of reform school. Now it is a Job Corps Center. Beautiful old buildings in a lovely setting.
