Did you know there is a small graveyard in Springs with only one stone? The reason is an African American is buried there. Thomas J. Davis, 1828--1902. Blacks were not allowed to join the army at the start of the Civil War. But they were allowed to join the navy because of their long history in the whaling industry. He served on the Heliotrope. There is much more info on this that Hugh King dug up. I found this out when I was invited to someone's house and going up a very long drive I noticed the lone gravestone. No one seemed to know anything about it. Which I found sad that no one seemed to care enough to find out. Anyway. My hostess contacted Hugh and he found a lot of info on this native son. If the Society is interested, I will forward his findings.

What Libraries Mean To The American Dream Last year, an economics professor suggested killing off the public library and replacing it with Amazon. The backlash was swift – and it’s ongoing. Why? Libraries are free, providing a refuge for everyone, and helping those disenfranchised gain more and more agency – and more: “Libraries are the cornerstones of democracy, where all people—regardless of income, race and religion—are welcome. To me, they’re also the one place where I truly feel at home.” – LitHub
Its friendly atmosphere. The historic building in the Heart of Springs. Of course it’s books. They always have new books arriving. The volunteers are great.

We hope to have the site up and running before the Summer.
