BURRTON'S OLD NEWS TRIVIA QUIZ

 

Can You Guess:  What Building Was This?

"The building used by Andy Stone for a barber shop is being fitted up for an ice cream saloon and confectionary shop."

The Burrton Telephone - April 1880.

 

Can You Guess:  What Church Was This?

"Last Sabbath morning the Rev. M. J. Duncan surprised his congregation by tendering his resignation.  Rev. Duncan feels that he has been here long enough and desires a change.  The people of this vicinity regret his decision as he is a sincere Christian and has done much to build up the community."

The Burrton Tribune - July 1914.
