    I was fairly sure that the house in the picture on the right,below, was the Hatt house, but thought I should check to be
    sure. I knew that David Atkinson would have the answer. Here's what he wrote when I asked.

    Yes Dan that is the Hatt house just before being washed away. I am not sure what kind of store they had..I know when
    my mom and dad owned it, it was a store and they sold not only light food to the workers at Westcott's Mill  but
    household stuff like bread and milk.

    The high school cupola was removed in August 2007
    because water was leaking through it and into the
    building. Since that time, as you see below, it's been
    on the ground at the wastewater treatment plant.
