Sumner Stone auction, Waterford, ca. 1910

Contributed by Waterford Historical Society


This photograph of a chair being auctioned off at the Sumner Stone Tavern, at the corner of Mill Hill Road and Passaconaway Road in Waterford, was taken around the turn of the twentieth century.

The Sumner Stone Tavern was run out of the home of Sumner Stone. The building later became Camp Passaconaway, from 1932 until it became Camp Joseph in 1960. Camp Passaconaway was founded by Arthur G. and Mary L. J. Carlson, to develop leaders of men. “Noblesse oblige” was the camp's motto and only boys with above average scholastic and social records, regardless of affluence, were chosen to attend.

As of 2013, this location was the site of Bradley Woodworking.
