On the warm fall evening of Oct. 3, the heavy branches of the massive oak trees lining Barry Avenue in Hitchcock swayed overhead, casting shadows across the roadway. At the end of the street on the manicured grounds, stands The Hitchcock Heritage Society Museum, the former home of the late Genevieve Miller. It was built in 1904.

Across the street at 8013 Neville Ave., the restored “Cottage” sits majestically in its glory. Both buildings are within walking distance of the library, connected by the graceful and beautiful oak trees of the Gordon and Ursula Latimer Park. The picturesque scene takes you back to a time long, long ago in small-town America.
