History on a Pinhead

The area has had little of its history recorded. No population figures are available but there had been a one-teacher school in 1904. “A number of dwellings” was reported in 1940 as well as a church, but Mr. Massey’s visit in 2012 revealed only the cemetery is left.


Photographer’s Note:
“While photographing the Packard Cemetery a woman passing by stopped and asked if I needed any help. She said there had been a school and church nearby but all evidence of both are now gone.” - Gerald Massey
