Overview
In Remembering Lyndon, local journalist and fourth generation Lyndonite Harriet Fletcher Fisher has compiled her favorite columns about Lyndon Center, Lyndon Corner, and Lyndonville, which have been appearing in the Caledonian-Record, the Lyndon Independent, and other local papers since 1961. Her articles take readers back to the first time electricity turned "the night to day" during Fourth of July celebrations in 1883, the afternoon in 1912 when Theodore Roosevelt came rumbling through town, and the countless evenings spent at the Sunset Ballroom dancing to H. Guy Dunbar and his band. Relive memories of Snowflake Festivals of years past, Saturdays at the Gem Theater, watching double features, and trips to the Ye Olde Bricke Tea Shoppe for a maple candy ice cream treat.
