Comments: From your home page I found the Yarmouth
weather cam, located at the Port Matland exit to the main highway to
the Valley. I installed the page on my desk top. It's always the first
thing I check when I turn on my computer in the morning. Also usually check
Avonport, as my wife went to school there, from Hantsport. I have even
sent the URL to a few friends originally from Yarmouth, now living all
over the place.

Location: Halifax, Nova Scotia
Comments: Hi there. I'm looking for some information on a house that was supposed to be haunted. It was on Main Street. Some folks called it The Captain's House, some called it The Widow's Walk, (I'm told). Apparently there was bagpipe music and strange lights involved. I know, I know, sounds like a typical Yarmouth Friday night.
I'd appreciate any info anybody can offer me. I'm a local storyteller,
and I'm looking for a good Yarmouth ghost story. The Churchill house
has been done to death. I heard this one when I was a teenager down
in Yarmouth, but my memory is betraying me.

Name: Murray Lewis
Location: Kings Park, New York
Comments: I'm a police officer here in New york and while reading Michelle
Eddy's essay on wellington, a flood of nostalgia came over me. You see,
I was born in Yarmouth and was raised in wellington. Our house was on the
main rd just across from the Burell rd or the road to Sandford. I went
to a one room school where Erma Watkins taught primer through ninth grade.
I think there were about a dozen of us in total. After the 2nd grade they
bussed us to Hebron. We attended Sunday school in the hall where Gladys
Cann would play the organ.We would float log rafts on Willie Pearce's mill
pond and fish for trout in the stream that flowed from it.It was a Tom
Sawyer, Huck Finn life for me and the Patten boys who were our neighbors
and as Michelle described, the changing seasons brought awe and amazement
to a boy of eight or nine. (Willie, his brother Vernon and their sister
Ethel, were all killed in a tragic accident at the Bluenose terminal in
1973. That was a sad day). I worked on John Jensen's farm in the summer,
stowing hay and milking cows. On saturday night we would go to Yarmouth
to see the movies after which we would go to Toots Hatfield's for candy
and comic books. Occasionally we'd be lucky enough to go to the Bright
Spot for a slab of rappi pie .( I'm the only one in NY who knows what it
is and I still make it as often as possible). My grandparents lived in
Port Maitland and sometimes I would walk up there to spend the weekend
and fish on the wharf with my grandfather. In the fall we would go to the
exhibition at the Yarmouth fair grounds. Chester Watkin's oxen would usually
take first prize in the haul. In 1959, when I was in the sixth grade, my
mother moved us here to NY. After high school I joined the Navy and spent
six years riding submarines. After that I spent seven years driving a truck.
I've been a cop here for the last 24 years and hope to retire in the near
future. I last visited Nova Scotia about five years ago and hope to get
back soon. You may leave there but I promise you, it doesn't leave you.
If any of those old trails still wander the woods to Sunday Lake, follow
them. You will then know the memories of which I speak. God Bless You All!!!

My maternal great grandmother was from Arichat and I felt lured to Isle Madame because of that newly discovered link and also because it was love at first sight when I spotted it on a map. Great site! Learned about it from listserv.
