Last month, the Todd fam­ily brought back a one-horse open sleigh from 1870 that orig­i­nally be­longed to the Todd fam­ily.

Ac­cord­ing to pres­i­dent of the North Point Penin­sula Coun­cil, Fran Tay­lor, last year when a few Todd’s In­her­i­tance or­ga­niz­ers were do­ing out­side work, David Carl­ton, a Dun­dalk res­i­dent, asked if they wanted it back.

“We said sure,” Tay­lor said.

Carl­ton had pur­chased the sleigh years ago at a Todd House prop­erty auc­tion.

When the Todd fam­ily re­united at their fam­ily re­union, they paid for the sleigh to come back to the Todd house.

“One thing we’re try­ing to do is bring back au­then­tic Todd mem­o­ra­bilia,” Tay­lor ex­plained. “This is a great ac­qui­si­tion.”

Ac­cord­ing to Tay­lor, the goal is to re­store the sleigh.
