Ro­ma­ni­ans caught at bor­der

Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE - Derby Line, VT,

Derby has a long, proud his­tory. At one time the Clyde River pow­ered a mul­ti­tude of mills, and farm­ing has al­ways been an im­por­tant part of life in bor­der com­mu­nity. It is now known for its grow­ing re­tail dis­trict.

The Derby His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety is look­ing for pho­tos as­so­ci­ated with the his­tory of the bor­der com­mu­nity: peo­ple, places, build­ings, or events. Pho­tos of the con­struc­tion of I-91 as it passed through Derby in the 1960s would also be greatly ap­pre­ci­ated. Peo­ple with such pho­tos are asked to bring them to the his­tor­i­cal so­ci­ety mu­seum on Oc­to­ber 20 from 2 to 4 pm. for Old Photo Day. Mem­bers of the his­tor­i­cal so­ci­ety will scan them on site and will in­clude them in the so­ci­ety’s archives. Mu­seum tours and re­fresh­ments will be avail­able. Ev­ery­one is wel­come, even if you don’t have pho­tos to share. Come and travel back into the his­tory of Derby.

The his­tor­i­cal so­ci­ety’s mu­seum is lo­cated on Derby’s Main Street. It’s lo­cated in the white build­ing im­me­di­ately to the left of North Coun­try Union Ju­nior High School in the build­ing that once served as the North Hall of Derby Academy. Peo­ple with ques­tions about the event, or who wish to know more about the his­tor­i­cal so­ci­ety, can con­tact Bill Gar­dyne at (802) 766-5324, Allen Yale at (802) 766-5159, or Scott Wheeler at (802) 3345920.

Kel­ley’s Cab­ins were lo­cated just out­side the Derby Line Vil­lage lim­its on Route 5.

This mill was lo­cated near where Route 105 crosses the Clyde River leav­ing the Vil­lage of Derby Center of Derby headed to­ward Charleston
