Each Monday, the Centre Daily Times will publish an installment in our “Share our Heritage” series, featuring photos from Centre County’s past. Today’s photo is from Rose Marie Grove, of Port Matilda.
Grove wrote: “This picture was taken in August of 1950 of the headquarters building and the playground. At that time, there was a sandbox, one large and one small swing set and a set of seesaws. The playground at that time was not fenced in, as it is now.
“Sara Grove, my aunt, was the secretary of the Grange Fair for 50 years.
“(I) at age 61/2 am standing at the bottom of the sliding board. Climbing up the steps is my sister, Judy Kay Grove, at age 4.
“This photo was enlarged from a postcard that was made.”
