Milo Historical Society receives gift

Submitted by Izzy Warren on July 10, 2014 - 12:19pm

The Milo Historical Society is very pleased to announce that they are the recent recipients of a historic piece of Milo property. W. Lawrence Doble, father of Jane Doble Annis, operated a blacksmith shop on this site for many years and a few long time residents of Milo remember the the building that stood into the mid twentieth century. The children of Jane Doble Annis, Eric Lawrence Annis and Lorinda Annis Schrager, have donated the former site of the Doble Blacksmith Shop to the Milo Historical Society. The small lot is located on the shore of the Sebec River; just past the West Main Street bridge, adjacent to the dam, and across the street from the Joseph P. Chaisson Post 41 American Legion Hall. It is a relatively small but scenic lot, that has been kept maintained to a limited extent over the years by conscientious citizens.
The historical society’s goal is to preserve the property as a small park and the Annis family has installed an engraved stone marker, in loving memory of the Doble Family and memorializing the Blacksmith Shop. The Milo Historical Society is very appreciative of this thoughtful gesture by the Annis family and hope that it will serve as a source of pride for our community.
