We were happy to have Don Robinson stop by and give us a presentation about the Coulson Town Cottages. The cottages were built in the mid 1800's by the Welsh quarry and slate workers. Thanks to Don, other volunteers, and generous donations from citizens and local businesses the cottages are being preserved. They may be the only ones of their kind in the country!
