Chippy's, Clair Carter's house to the left of Chippy's downtown Easton.

House in center belonged to Clair Carter previously owned by the cleaves family.
Behind the house is the legion hall.

Building in back of Chippy's was Bell Telephone I believe. Open area in back of Legion Hall was an outdoor basketball court. Field to the right was owned by Perry's when we used to hay in the summer during late 60's.

Red Barn was Perry,s, Barn far right was our Dad ,barn on our lot. Miss our old town
great place to grow up.

Great place to visit Grandparents Aunts Uncles and Cousins!

Great photo! Brings back a lot of great memories. A Very special place in time! I wish we could have that time today!

I would love to know who is walking down the driveway towards the gas station.

It would be nice to know Kerry

I spent a lot of time playing the pink ball machine during noon hour from school. My father always purchased his gas from Chippy's store and loaded up on candy and odds and ends. It was at Chippy's that my father, Fred L. Dinsmore taught me about community loyalty. I had noticed on one occasion that gas was a few cents cheaper in Presque Isle, so I asked my dad about it. He told me that communities thrive where members support each other. It has stayed with me my whole life. I often think how wonderful it would be to go back in time and spend a day within the community of my youth.

This home also belonged to my grandfather Allie Cleaves, and my Uncle Jim and Aunt Teen lived there. They owned it before the Carter's.

NO Red Barn NOW.? if the Legion Hall is still there!! OUR Barn on Right & House. The BEST place to grow UP.

I will never forget the day that I was kicked out of high school for telling Mr. Smalliadge to go make love to himself. I sat on the bench at Chippy's pondering how I was going to tell my parents that I had been kicked out of high school and why I was kicked out. Once I told them it was a relief and my father sided with me as to why I said what I said to Mr. Smalliadge. I shoveled a lot of potatoes during my two week expulsion!
