From the late 1940s to 1959, this building on Dutcher Street
    was operated as the Little Red Schoolhouse. Originally it
    was the pump house for the Hopedale Coal & Ice icehouse.
    It's mentioned in Hopper's history of cutting ice on Hopedale
    Pond. Click here to see an article about a Red Schoolhouse
    Christmas party. Lots of names from that era there.

    Neighboring town pictures for March -
    College Rock, Hopkinton. From Milford,
    College Street is a right a short
    distance past the town line  into
    Hopkinton on Route 85. College Rock
    is on the right, about a quarter mile
    from the intersection. There's a small
    parking area, and the rock is only about
    100 yards into the woods.


We had a few inches of very wet snow on March 1.

    Goofy version of the  town seal. The horizon and the style of barn
    in the picture on the right make it look like it would be better for a
    town in Colorado than anywhere around here. The older version
    below doesn't have the "Rocky Mountains background."
