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.

We’re Back! Proudly presents: The Secrets and Treasures of Life on the Ministerial Lot-- Located on Town Line Road by Jim Hoag and Marilyn Pillsbury Friday, March 4, 2016 at 7PM at Folsom School in Julie Pidgeon’s Room SHHS is glad to start up the 2016 year of local historical programs with Jim Hoag and Marilyn Pillsbury revealing the secrets and little know facts about the Ministerial Lot (Lot 19 on Townline Rd) and the brick house next door that is one of the oldest and least known houses in South Hero. It was built on or before 1794 making it about 222 years old! You will hear the history of the transformation of the Ministerial lot, set aside in the first legislature for the support of the ministry, later to be sold and divided. Marilyn will share pictures of the old fireplace with the Dutch ovens which had been stoned up behind a wall for over 100 years and revealed beautiful fossils in the mantle stone. Our meetings are held at 7 p.m. in the Folsom School on South Street usually the first Friday of each month. Check the Islander for confirmation. If you prefer not to climb the stairs, enter the building from the original front door in the brick half of the building. All ages are welcome!
