Blinkbonnie History





 

In 1909, Mrs. Margaret Miller (Blinkbonnie 1888-1915) received an invitation from Mrs. Harrington who lived across Route 20 on Miller Road in a home called " Dream Drift".   Here is her response to that invitation.  

"My dear Mrs. Harrington:  I'll gladly read one of Longfellow's poems next Friday evening.  Sincerely yours, Margaret Louise Miller, Blinkbonnie, Feb.28, 1909" .  

This is the first reference to the name "Blinkbonnie". (This memorabilia will be given to the new owner of Blinkbonnie).
