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.

Robinson Hardware Store

On May 3, 2019 the South Hero Historical Society hosted a wonderful session that enlightened a full crowd about the history of the Robinson Hardware Store, the kickoff of the 2019 season.
As you drive  on route 2 you will pass OUR hardware store.  The Robinson Family Hardware store has been there for about 140 years. I dare say that no-one in town remembers when it opened.  The primary building that is now the Hardware Store has always been the primary building, although it has provided multiple functions to the community over the years, in addition to hardware.
Cathy Robinson and Sarah [Robinson] Wakefield showed pictures and shared stories of local merchandising by the Robinson Family. Color commentary was added by Malcolm Allen as only Malcolm can do.  Watch the video, check out the pictures and enjoy a large piece of South Hero history that is tied up in the Robinson Hardware Store.
