I also wanted to say that sunday was a huge
hit!!! I spoke to a woman who said that she
remembers talking with Derek Webb before he
died and he told her that they dragged one of
the cottages across the ice to Shelburne Farms
and that it is still there - I would love to
get down there and see if we can find it -
supposedly near the diary barn. Also, would really like to get down to Basin
Harbor to see if some of the cottages ended up
there. So if anyone is interested in a mini
little field trip, let me know.-Helen
