Snake Hill to Spring Bank Volume One Introduction

As the new Groveton steadily moved toward completion at its site on Quander Road, a class of English students of the old Groveton set out to write an account of the Groveton community. We made a list of people we thought could contribute. We interviewed and tape-recorded some of the community's most knowledgeable members. Our narrators answered questions we asked and always told us much more than we had thought to ask.

Snake Hill to Spring Bank is an edited version of the oral history tapes that will be available at the Graoveton library. In editing these words we tried to be true to the character of the narrator even though we couldn't print every word. We have not indicated deletions of words. We have tried to reproduce accurately the spoken language of the narrators.

Certain themes and events reoccur in various interviews throughout the book. We have learned much about our community and the people who live here. We wish to thank the narrators. Without them this book would not have been possible.
