When Readfield Corner Burned

Banner of Readfield Fire presentation by Dale Potter-Clark

Dale Potter-Clark gave this interesting presentation at “Senior Cafe”, which meets at the Marnacook Middle School on Monday mornings. Senior Cafe is for anyone 55 or older, although anyone would be welcome. The presentation was about the days when Readfield Corner was once a bustling business center where groceries, shoes, clothing, millinery, hardware, carriages and even coffins and gravestones could be purchased. Readfield Telephone Company was also located at Readfield Corner as well as a hotel, tavern and livery. The audience learned about this industrious village of long ago and about the day that it all changed forever.
