Hope Corner, Hope Maine

 

 

Comments from a meeting of the Hope Historical Society in 2010: Hope Corner from edge of present Hope Orchard on Hatchet Mountain Road. After 1907, before 1930s. Hope Orchard not yet planted by Pop Wentworth. Liberty pole still there. Adding to True cannery. No gas pump at store. Good view of Allie Allen farm, which was once the Sweetland tavern. Before top burned (1947?). Cooper's shop on right was used as vestry by church, later as garage by Quincy Peabody, later by John & Dot Salisbury when they bought corner store from Ludwigs. Church and church yard with elm in background. Aunt Cordelia's not visible.
