Pass Ferry before the bridge was built in 1935
- when it was a one horse town
historian Dorothy Neil
a history is no easy task. Years ago when I started talking
to old timers and taking notes on what happened nearly a
century and a half ago, we found amusingly different tales
from various ones present at the same happening. They repeated
what their father or mother had told them, which was colored
by sentiment, prejudice, or by their own natures. Then the
event would no doubt bear our own stamp of interpretation
as well as theirs.
the names, places and dates survive, which alone do not make
an interestingly readable history. The mood of the writer
has great impact on a story. But even the reader changes the
story with his reactions and prejudices.
