Happy Day for Lo­cal Loy­al­ists

Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE - Vic­to­ria Vanier, Water­ville

A new road sign along route 143 was un­veiled on Mon­day, one that will hon­our Gil­bert Hy­att, an im­por­tant Loy­al­ist set­tler for whom a part of the road had been named for in the early 1990’s. Those signs were taken down in 2005, fol­low­ing mu­nic­i­pal merg­ers in the area. Ac­cord­ing to the pres­i­dent of the UELAC Lit­tle Forks Branch, Bev Loomis, vis­i­tors and de­liv­ery peo­ple have been hav­ing trou­ble find­ing ad­dresses along that stretch of route 143 be­tween Len­noxville and Water­ville be­cause GPS sys­tems were still re­veal­ing the road by its proper name: route Gil­bert Hy­att.
