Beautiful and finely detailed models of Depauville landmarks have been donated to the Community Center and are now on display at the Library.
Jan Debevic (born Janice Exford) has graciously donated models of the Methodist Church, the Old Stone School, and the MacFarlane Building. Over the years her friend, George Frank, a Methodist minister and railroad buff, skillfully constructed these buildings, as well as a model of Jan’s home in the hamlet. After the recent fire that destroyed the MacFarlane Building, Jan thought the models would be better kept here in Depauville and we are grateful for her generosity.
Generosity has also brought us a model of the Old Stone Church. Made on a larger scale, the model not only captures the outside of the church but accurately shows the building's interior. Viva Fauteux (born Viva Ward) grew up on Grindstone but lived for a time in the hamlet and has donated her replica of the landmark to the community. Since the church no longer holds services, it is an amazing time capsule of Depauville history and a wonderful gift to share.
