My town 110 years ago

lilosophieJanuary 10, 2013

Our Bank is celebrating it's 110 years of business and has compiled an wonderful calendar of the County's history, the June page shows my town, the Laytonville Inn is a registered historical Landmark and still in business, hasn't changed a whole lot, the dirt-road is now Highway 101 and instead of horses, cars are parked in front

Lilo, that calendar will be one to save, that's for sure. Isn't it amazing to think how the world has changed in terms of technology, but we're still the same old people in terms of human frailties that we were then? Maybe even worse. Wonder what the world will be like in the next 110 years?

110 years ago this small city I live in was nothing but farms along a major north/south road. It's 5 times larger now than what it was when we moved in the area in 1972.

I don't think people have changed much since they came down from the trees. They know more but their basic reactions are still the same.

That is so cool. I'm so glad to see that some of the history was saved in your city.
Our city's history is part of the Portuguese fishing community, then the German community, and since this is Silicon Valley, everybody came here and tried their wings.
We have a great historical "room" at city hall.
