          I grew up on the hill, and lived in the [River Ridge Farm] Franklin Gate House in the 70's. My parents actually rented the home from Price Real Estate. It was a wonderful place to grow up as a young boy, lots of woods. I found the [milk] bottle along with one more just like it by luck walking in the woods. I am almost 50 yrs, I often think of the wonderful woods and Blueberry Hill, The Point, Caves, Ponds, and is a magical place.  In His Service, Randy A. Winters (3/6/2010)
