Our final tour was the most excellent — Louis Santerre, a long time resident of Cherryfield served as our tour guide as we did our walk about Cherryfield’s lost trotting park. This video features Louie as he tells us the history of this lost park — from trotters and pacers to stock cars! Dan and I walked ahead along the path to the old fairgrounds now all wooded. Soon Louie appeared on his four wheeler!
