tHe Legacy of Samuel Hannaford
An eScrapbook compiled and written by Betty Ann Smiddy
"When we build, let us think that we build forever. Let it not be for pleasant delight, nor for present use alone. Let it be such work as our descendants will thank us for; and let us think, as we lay stone on stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, 'See! This our father did for us.'”
-- John Ruskin
