There used to be an ell on the back of the Mosses Taft house. My grandmother
,Mary(Eldridge)Knowels lived there in the 1950s.
I have lived in town for over 40 years and thought I had visited and enjoyed all of our points of interest. After reviewing the list of attractions I realized I missed some and now have a renewed interest to explore the missed and revisit some a second time with my grandchildren.
