Glanton, The Village c.1950

More about this scene


Caption for Glanton, The Village C1950: Consisting of little more than one long street running east to west, Glanton enjoyed a reputation for the healing properties of the water from the Keppin or Keppie Well situated behind the old school house. The custom carried out during the summer months was for parents to wrap their weakly offspring in blankets and place them under the well spout. The well's name is derived from the days when villagers would draw water which was then kept in pails, jugs or skeels.
