Celebrations here are in the form of Sandy Hill Days, during which local bands play, rides and games are available in my old elementary school field, and an arts and crafts fair is held in the town center at Juckett Park. I just found a beautiful photo of the park from a local photographer on deviantART, and I'm hoping she'll be okay with me posting it here. There was a link for downloading, so I decided to post first and then contact her so she can take a look at how it's being used before she makes her decision. Hope you don't mind fg38, but please let me know it you do! :)
Juckett Park in Winter
And because I love old maps, here's one from Old Maps.
Sandy Hill c.1884
I think I've mentioned before that this is a small area, and I've discovered the population to have been recorded at 6,927 as of the 2000 census. It will be interesting to see where we're at once the numbers are calculated for this year's census - filling out my own form today!
We have a neat little area historically, so if you're interested in that kind of thing, you might want to read more about the history of Upstate NY or check out some notable residents of Washington County. We also have a lot of people involved in the various arts here, including famous poet William Bronk and writer Michael Kaye [that would be my dad!]. And that ends this one - I hope I didn't bore you too much, and that you have a great day! :)
