OUR HERITAGE IS OUR PRIDE AND JOY
It is OUR LIFE BLOOD. Our Story . Our Connection to the Earth from which we Sprang . It is both Physical and Spiritual To Destroy it... is to Diminishes US ALL
Hoover Fieldstone Homestead 1855
Stituated on Lebovic lands south of town.There are no concrete plans at present to preserve or incorporate the historical structure into the proposed subdivision.There is however a small stone in front of the Pool Library Complex commemorating the fact that it is built on the former Hoover Homestead. A more fiting memorial would be the fieldstone farmhouse itself!
Our History Destroyed? Mysteriously Burnt Aug 06 mere weeks before the land was stripped for development .Such fortunitous timing for the developers .They get another lot . We lose our Roots our Soul
Old Theatre c1895
Flagship building of Townsquare.Originally built as a market and concert hall,operated as a Silent Movie Cinema,garage and bowling alley in 1920's. In 1930 became Stanley Theatre which continued until 1959. Served as municipal offices,council chambers until1998 Its future is uncertain as the mayor seeks to rent it or sell it(and perhaps tear it down)feeling it more important to spend the money fixing mistakes at the Rink rather then spend it to preserve our heritage. We feel a substantial investment in our Townsquare would go a long way in increasing the Marketability of the Historical aspects of the town and give the creative elements of the town a means of self expression! A community theatre -art centre would give the Heritage Train passengers something to see and do between trains.

It has been suggested in the Urban Planning that Commercial St. be extended thru to Park St.This structure stands in that path!
Muncipal Government appears to be getting its act together concerning heritiage designations,Patterson House Main St,Town Hall Theatre, COOP Grain Elevator,etc
Our HERITAGE is PRICELESS. . for the simple reason that when it is GONE .... No Amount of Money will ever Bring it Back!
