Some more pictures from the library website so you'll have to got to the page to check them out...  these are in a postcard section in their historic photos section:

the first one is a wooden building that was on Washington Street before they tore it down to build the brick one which ended up burning...   maybe they should have left the wooden one ??? ??? ???

Took a ride last night to look for some deer and ended up driving by the flag pole.  He did a great job of fixing it up and it really looks nice!
