Society to hear history of Paris pickle factory


PARIS — Ben Conant and Cynthia Immonen will present the history of the Paris Pickle Factory that once operated on Western Avenue, almost opposite the Oxford County Court House, at a meeting at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 16, of the Paris Cape Historical Society, at the society’s museum at 77 High St.

For those who are planning ahead, the Paris Cape Historical Society will have a Christmas party on a date to be announced next month. It will be a potluck supper at 5 p.m. at the home of Cynthia Immonen, 43 Mountain View Drive, South Paris, and will include the singing of Christmas carols and other entertainment.

The mapping of Riverside Cemetery is complete, and in the near future the Riverside Cemetery Annex will also be finished. Those who have family buried in either cemetery will find these offerings by the society to be of assistance.

The society will continue to have open house from 1 to 4 p.m. every Thursday, with the last open house for the winter scheduled for Nov. 20, except by appointment. People have attended from as far as Switzerland.
