Our favorite fence

A view from the back porch of the house

Much has changed on Maple lane in a century. Walter's great grandson and his family now run Mower's fleamarket in the summers. The house is gone, torn down in 1970. The fleamaket will start it's 37th season in May 2014.

American Tapestry the Mowers of Maple Lane

Walter and his family lived there until his son John got married. Walter moved over to Mower's Lane and his parents and sister and her family lived in the little houses at the end of the property. Copies of the biography of the family and the fleamarket are avail for sale at the Golden Notebook or thru the author at woodstockfleamarket@hvc.rr.com. $ 16.00 each.

In the early 1900's things were different

Walter Mower purchased this land in 1907. The building that was at one time a creamery he converted into a home for his family. The home sat at the corner of Maple Lane and what we refer to as Deanies Alley. Walter and his son John had a fresh vegetable stand in one of the buildings on the property- near by the carriage sheds of the Lutheran Church. Walter planted a good portion of this field with raspberry bushes. He also had fruit trees on the field.

The first big snow of 2014

We took a ride around town this morning before the major snow fall started. Imagine Maple Lane without any cars parked along it. No hustle and bustle of the flea market out on the field.
