Food for thought from a sign-eating tree
If your travels take you to the intersection of Purgatory and William Reynolds roads, you'll come upon this tree. At our last meeting, several of us were discussing how fascinating it is to watch how nature tries to slowly erase our footprints - and the "sign-eating tree" is the very embodiment of this. We are reminded that all of our historical treasures here in Exeter - roads, farms, schools, cemeteries - will be hidden by nature without our deliberate efforts!
And that's what the Exeter Historical Association is all about.
Many thanks to EHA board member Gary Boden for both the picture and the thoughts!
