In Years Past

June 30, 2014

In 1914, Jamestown High School's newest graduating class held its vigil at Sylvan Park Monday afternoon and evening. The party, numbering about 40 members, left on the chartered steamer Rochester at 3:30 p.m. and docked at Victoria from where they walked to Sylvan Park. The afternoon was spent in the usual picnic festivities, although the disagreeable weather interfered somewhat with the plans of the day.

The party left Victoria shortly after midnight, returning to Jamestown at an early hour.
