Title: Where is Housetts?
Post by: Dana Deering on May 14, 2009, 06:23:44 AM
I was reading some of the inventory lists in the back of the Bridgton Pictorial book and in one of the lists of buildings it shows a place called "Housetts", if I am remembering correctly.  There was a handcar/tool house there, a rail shed, and something else.   It shows the buildings as being built in 1883 so it would be on the Bridgton to Hiram line.  Was that South Bridgton?

Dana,
  Housetts next to Barn. Barn sets next to pasture. Sorry couldn't resist.

   You got me looking. Comparing the 1916 and 1927 inventory lists, I am guessing Housett is at the South end of the Bridgton Yard. The way the inventory was written up in 27 was different but there are 4 of the road buildings there, the only place there was 4. Just a guess on my part.
