Oral Histories: The People of St. Paul 3

In Their Own Words: Residents of St. Paul describe what life was like in the town's formative years:

"The winters were cold and long with lots of snow. The one who drove the horses was the worst off; the others just wrapped up in the blankets. Mom made all our clothes, so they were warm. She kept us busy sewing, mending, knitting and mat-making. We helped with the chores, the garden and painting, whatever needed to be done. For entertainment, we would have films or card parties at Church organized by the priest. We had dances at weddings and other parties."

— Simone Blouin
