Stories from Eastport

A story by Ruth McInnis from 1920s-present

My memories of growing up in Eastport, WWII, camping, and history on the border between the US and Canada. I worked at Hutchinson's Pharmacy during World War II, which also had a soda fountain. I went to the Normal School in Machias, and later received a Masters degree in Education/Reading. I taught school in Eastport. I eventually moved back to Eastport, and purchased Todd House--the oldest house in Eastport--in 1978.
