Oct. 17 in history

Oct. 17, 1936 - Wrightstown road to be ready for traffic: Relocated Highway 96, through the east side of Wrightstown village, will be opened to traffic late next week, it was announced at the division office of the state highway department today.

Several important changes in the village were indirect results of the highway job. Sewers and waterworks, discussed for several years, were voted at a special election. The voters approved the improvement by a big majority, and the work went in.

The telephone office was in the path of the curve straightening, so a new telephone office was built, incorporating a dial exchange. This was placed in service about two weeks ago, and Wrightstown subscribers now have the latest type instruments.

Straightening the jog at the foot of the hill required razing of the American House, Wrightstown's landmark for many years. The new road passes over the spot where the hotel formerly stood.
