August meeting in Feversham

Wednesday, August 20, 2014 at 1:30 pm Feversham

Let's hope for good weather for the August meeting as we are hoping that we can have an enjoyable walk through the pretty village of Feversham.

The village of Feversham is located on part of L. 16, C.9 of Osprey Township in the headwaters of the Beaver River. Before the turn of the century, the river was quite rapid with a fall of about eight feet just below the village which led to the development of grist and sawmills. The village was named after an English gentleman, Lord Feversham, although it was originally called Hungry Hollow. In the 1850s Mr. Edward Horton Esq. laid out a portion of his property into lots and the village began to grow. 

Come and enjoy a walking tour of this quaint village with local historian, Jill Badgerow. Perhaps, she will tell us why it was called Hungry Hollow.
