Helen’s Random Memories

It is hard to remeber the train only came to Rawdon for 47 years. It was a vital part of the village. The many time we school children hitched a ride on the end of the long bobsleighs loaded with logs and headed to the station. Some of the farmers did not like the idea of our hanging on the back of the sleigh. They would make the horses suddenly run so we could not get on.

They say a school was on the corner of 3rd Ave. My father had to walk to the village school (about 3 miles) for his last years. He started in the little range school on the side of the road near Casaubon’s. (actually, although Helen was not aware of it this was the original Copping farm.)Rose Talbot (nee Hanna) was the teacher.
