The same could be said of generations that followed, until our modern lives at last evolved away from the cycles of the land and its seasons. At Griffith Morgan House and Burrough-Dover House, we look back and celebrate the rhythms by which our ancestors lived, even as we wind down the year of history here in our 125-year-old township.
