School days in Smith Village

Good Morning,

Previously I posted a photo of Smithville taken from the bridge looking up toward the intersection of Goen and Page Hill Road. This is a different perspective, looking down from what is now known as Page Hill Road but is identified as School Street on this postcard.

The old school house on Page Hill Road is now a private residence. It hasn't changed in outward appearance over the years as indicated in this blend of old and new photos.
At the intersection of Taylor, Fox Farm (Maxwell Hill), Goen and Smitviille Road was the summer residence of Dr. J. L. Hildreth. I knew of this house as the residence of Dick Martin who owned Attar Herbs in New Ipswich. The house is currently on the market.
