Bear Den Meeting at the Wayside Inn

My¬† first den meeting was at the Wayside Inn Grist Mill and Schoolhouse. Almost everyone came,plus 3 new scouts. Inside the Grist Mill, there was a person who talked to us about the Grist Mill and what goes on in it. What he said was very interesting, the Grist Mill is still working and they will grind grain for you. Inside the schoolhouse I learned that Henry Ford moved it from Sterling Massachusetts to the Wayside Inn many years ago. This schoolhouse was where the “Mary had a Little Lamb” story happened. Mary was nine years old when her lamb followed her to school. Mary grew up to be a school teacher. The woman inside the schoolhouse told us stories and answered our questions. The Den meeting was very interesting! -Theodore C.
