Regarding DuBois Pioneer Home. Used by Harry and Susan DuBois as a family home from their marriage in 1898 until after Harry's death in 1924. DuBois family rented the home out, mostly short-term, in the 1930s and 1940s. The most notable renters were Charles McLean Andrews and Evangeline Walker Andrews in the early 1940s. They produced a new edition of the book "Jonathan Dickinson's Journal" in 1945 because of their visits here. From 1950 to 1974, the home was owned by Leo Vickers and known as the Vickers House. It has been an pioneer house museum since 1975.
