Consider honouring Kentville blacksmith
While the debate is underway, if I may be allowed as a long time resident of the town of Kentville, might I suggest an appropriate name for the new replacement bridge should honour a long time “Kentonian”.
I would submit that Kentville blacksmith John Fitch would be deserving submission.
Fitch’s blacksmith shop and home, were located on he south bank of the Cornwallis River on the land were the Kentville library used to be located.
John raised a very good family who were educated and worked in the town of Kentville. His son Art resides in the town.
When John worked on farmers’ animals (from outside of town), the farmers would run their errands, thus adding to the town’s financial benefit.
In my opinion it is time to recognize the average citizen’s of Kentville who contributed to the overall well being of the town.
This letter was also sent to Kentville’s council and mayor.
