Pluses:  It was a small community when I lived there. It was a good place to be as a kid. The school had 4 classrooms, but the basement was used as an inside gym on rainy days. The town was 4 streets high and 4 wide. Everyone knew everyone. That was both good and bad for a kid. This was in 1965-66. The town seemed to be dying even then. But, those that lived there kept it active. Church, scouting and girl guides, community events. The torch from the refinery would be so bright some nights that us kids could sit on the stret and read our comic books. Small fish were always in the drainage pipes at the sides of the main street. The frog pond by the school was full of frogs, until we finally caught them all. The bridge over the revines always provided some point of exploration. Then, families moved out and the houses came down. I'm sorry to see it gone.

Minuses:  I can't think of any.

A good place to...  Go for a walk up some of the over grown trails and find a little hidden history.
