Before and After. The Marble River Hill in the late 1880s (top picture), with its winding narrow road, wooden bridge, old starch factory, spring house, hore and carriage. The small child in the carriage is believed to be the late Gordon Green, who lived in the house with his parents at the top of the hill.

Below (1981), the recently completed new blacktop road, straight and wider. Note that the houses on the hill remained the same throughout the years. Only the occupants have changed. On the left is the Walter Silver farm; on the right, the Spencer Dumont residence.
