Paul Wilder, librarian at the Harness Racing Museum, sent me
a PDF file that contained these two letters. At the time of writing
these letters, Harriet Hilton was 95. I wonder if the reply
from the Museum still exists! My appreciation is extended to
the Harness Racing Museum for sending this gem to be posted on
Today Libby and I completed a day trip from Hallowell
to Belfast, to Castine, to Blue Hill, to Deer Isle, and
to Stonington. Part of our time in Blue Hill was spent
at the Blue Hill Historical Society. I dropped by
to see if the society had any information or images on
the Blue Hill Fair and the history of harness racing.
Courtenay Haight, the Society's Vice Present greeted
me. Courtenay was most helpful and made my
visit a success! My thanks!
Below are the photographs I took while visiting the Blue Hill Historical Society.
