The gazebo (pictured above) that has graced the triangular park in the center of Harford village since 1994 is no more. A letter from Bronson Pinchot’s attorney to the Harford Historical Society demanded that the gazebo – and the 1940 monument for Harford’s 150th year – be removed by February 1, 2009. And so, on Friday, January 30, the gazebo and the stone and bronze monument were moved to the property of the old firehouse on Market Street, awaiting further disposition. The gazebo may end up at the Soldiers Orphans School, on Orphan School Road, pending a final decision by the Historical Society. The large blue spruce tree, that decorated the little village each Christmas for so many years, has also been cut down.
The Great Bend Borough Council has been struggling for many years to provide more and better police coverage for the little town. At one time, a police department shared with neighboring municipalities operated from the borough building. That police department was disbanded some years ago after the cooperating towns pulled out one by one. More recently, the borough was on the verge of leasing some time from the Lanesboro police department, when fuel prices began to rise sharply and Lanesboro backed out.
