    Six year old Joey and I took the short hike to Hurricane Point during Old Home Week. The trail meanders around some fallen poplar trees to the point. Along the way is an old cellar hole. The actual foundation measures about 36 by 28 or so with one corner dug deeper as was the custom in those days. I will ask at the Historical Society who owned that house. It wasn’t ee cummings’ tree house.
