No short history, to be included in a publication of many, can mention everything and everyone that helped to make a community what it has become over a period of more than 150 years. It is sincerely hoped that these accounts will bring back memories, some long forgotten to those who will read it today." Mrs.Phylis Stone, Scipio Twp. 1976,from 150 years in the Hills and Dales, vol.2,pg. 321
