Dr. Robinson's 3-4 classroom blog from 2012-2016

The students in Dr. Robinson's 3-4 Team studied South Hero History for 6 years and took many field trips around town.
Click on this link to see where the students went around town and what townsfolk they met along the way.


At the end of 2018 Lake Champlain Access Television [LCATV] started filming our presentations. Their output is 2 to 4 times sharper than the videos I was putting up. That means it takes a little longer to get the video to start. [The reason I reduced the quality level of my videos.] Their production is different than mine and you will notice that immediately.
When you click on a video, it starts to load. It will take about 30 seconds [an eternity when you are waiting] to start playing. The speakers will start to sound and the video will look like it is not running for about 23 seconds. LCATV puts up an identification POSTER for those 23 seconds. Don't be alarmed, it is running if you can hear the sound.

The Life and Times of Col. Horatio Nelson Jackson with Mary Louis Blanchard

An auto trip across country is a daunting thing. Imagine doing it in 1902 when cars were less than reliable and roads were few and varied. Listen to the life and times of the accomplished Col. H. Nelson Jackson as presented by his granddaughter, Mary, who spent many summers on "The Point" which is located in South Hero across from Providence Island which is now called Phelps Point. The Jacksons also owned the sandy beach part of Crescent Bay and the red farmhouse which currently houses the Crescent Bay Bed 'N Breakfast and is owned by David and Julie Lane today.
