...that there used to be a gas station where Union Bank is now?
What an exciting and fun-filled week! We visited the Goshen Historical Society, Goshen Town Hall and the Union Bank of Goshen.
We learned how Goshen used to have 13 school districts. We looked on a map from the 1800's and figured out where we would have attended school - before cars and buses. Did you know that there was a Goshen Center School in the 1800's? However, it was located next to the Congregational Church.
Eventually when the schools became one Goshen Center School, did you know that the Town Hall used to be the school? The room next door to the First Selectman's office used to be a Second Grade Classroom when Mr. Valentine attended school there!
We also learned all about the important work being done in the Land Use Office. Did you know that the new requirements state that there needs to be a smoke alarm in every bedroom now? How about the fact that the good people of Goshen who volunteer their time, are working hard to figure out the weed problem in our lakes and ponds? It's easy to take for granted all we have and important to understand the time and effort involved in running a wonderful town like Goshen!
