Part I: Community

“In the summer there were picnics, rides, wild berry picking, with hunting and fishing close at hand.  We ranged Doan Brook from the Shakers to Lake Erie, and took long horseback rides… In Autumn, chestnut, walnut and hickory nuts were waiting to be gathered, and in the winter skating, sleigh-rides and coasting helped out…at times with plenty of snow, [we] could go clear across the valley and the frozen brook.”

Charles Post, Doan’s Corners and the City Four Miles West (1930)
