“The Changing Years A History of Depauville” was first researched, written, and printed in 1976 by members of the Depauville Bicentennial Committee wishing to celebrate the important milestone with a project that would be a legacy to future generations.
The material submitted far exceeded their expectations. In addition to strictly historical information, it included accounts of numerous heart-warming moments and human-interest incidents in the lives of Depauville residents, past and present.
The 1976 book was compiled from early records of churches and organizations, wills, deeds, obituaries, census records, and diaries. Old scrapbooks revealed a wealth of information and recollections of older Depauville residents provided tremendous help in regard to the history of local buildings.
In 2004, responding to continued interest and demand for the hamlet’s history and with copies of the 1976 book no longer available, “The Changing Years”, was reprinted. The original manuscript was kept unchanged but an addendum was added covering the years 1975 to 2000.
