1. The/Le Village of Tusket Marker
Inscription.

Next to the Court House on the east side of the street was the Tusket Cycle Company and just south of that, the Methodist Church built in 1877. On the opposite side of the street, the building in the foreground with the bundle of shingles was Bernard Hurlbert's store, now part of Carl's Grocery. The one to the south, no longer standing, was a store owned by William T. Lent. The next building to the south, the Elmer Hatfield store, was relocated in Tusket in the 1980s. The fourth building, a warehouse, no longer exists.

—————————————

Du côté est de la route, tout près du tribunal, était situé le Tusket Cycle Company. Plus loin, vers le sud, se trouvait l'église méthodiste construite en 1877. En face de ceux-ci, au premier plan, la bâtisse où l'on voit le paquet de bardeaux était la magasin de Bernard Hurlbert. Aujourd'hui cette bâtisse fait partie du magasin Carl's Grocery. Le deuxième édifice vers le sud était un autre magasin qui a été démoli il y a plusieurs années. William T. Lent en était le propriétaire. La bâtisse suivante, le magasin Elmer Hatfield, a été déménagée à un nouvel emplacement à Tusket pendant les années 1980. La dernière bâtisse, un entrepôt, n'existe plus.
