Spring In Town

This past week, I drove by Dutter’s Gibbsville Orchard.  The old apple trees, pruned with so much care, are beautiful all year.  They are a wonderful picture of age, and then the spring blossoms, summer growth, and may the harvest be generous.

Dutch immigrants settled here in the 1840s, as our Village of Oostburg site states.  My father taught history and my interest has grown over the years.  Oostburg has grown in a beautiful way.  We are a small town, and the planning seems to be so thoughtful.  Once upon a time, I was new here.  Now my memories are long.

Blessings, Ellen

  1. I don’t know why I’ve never thought of this, but your comment about Oostburg and the Dutch heritage suddenly brought to mind names from my childhood. VanderPoole. Vandemere. Vandewater. Hudepohl. A Dutch town, Pella, was only thirty miles away, but clearly the Dutch had settled beyond the town boundaries.
