WEBBS MILLS AND THE PLATTSBURGH MOVEMENT

   

These photos were taken c. 1916 in Webbs Mills, Casco.  The building in the background with the steeple is the Webbs Mills Schoolhouse.

The pictured men were part of the Plattsburgh Movement (1913-1920), which began before World War I.  Organized in Plattsburgh, New York, its purpose was military preparedness and for the training of potential U.S. Army officers.


DOWNTOWN CASCO VILLAGE

 

Wayne Lewis of Casco kindly gave the RCHS copies of two postcards, circa 1935 and 1950, of the Casco Village store—then known as Chadbourne’s Store.  In 1952, Curly Redmond purchased the business and by the 1970s, the store was known as the Casco A.G.


TUKEY/GRAY FAMILY

   

Louise Knapp of Gray generously donated three original photographs of the Tukey family to the RCHS.  The pictures, from left to right, are of Marion Tukey (1893-1981); her brother, Oscar Tukey (1905-1917); and her husband, Dr. Carl Gray (1886-?).  Five generations of the Tukey family lived in Raymond Village and most were buried in Raymond Village Cemetery.
