Parksville, New York?
Posted By: Susan Forrest on Aug 23, 2019
We've all heard the story about Parksville: European settlers turned up and "discovered" the area, built a railway line which caused a boom in population, eventually a bunch of resorts were built and it became a preferred summer destination for city dwellers in search of a peaceful country escape.
But there's a catch...it sounds like Parksville alright, but this is not OUR Parksville, this is the history of Parksville New York!
Here's an interesting story about a town that shares our name, from atlasobscura.com.
A great read with your morning coffee!
