“The Planters were among the earliest English-speaking settlers in this area,” said Mr. Scott Armstrong. “In 1761, they set about re-establishing their lives on this rich farmland, and we benefit to this day from their hard work. In the two and a half centuries since then, the soil has remained rich and our history has been even richer, thanks to the diligence and determination of the Planters.”
