Review articles

(ref: http://www.historichampshire.org/tidbits.htm):

April 26, 1961 The Addition of Savilla Vale has officially become a part of the town of Romney, having been incorporated in the town limits as a result of the favorable vote cast in the special election held on April 5. The voters in favor of the annexation of Savilla Vale, both residents of Romney and of the Addition, were over whelmingly in favor of the proposition.

September 27, 1911 George E. Harmison's Valley View Addition lot sale, west of Romney depot, last Saturday was a success. He sold 21 lots at public auction and several privately, at an average of about $125. The free lot went to J.H. Newhouse. Mr. Harmison set apart two lots on a bluff overlooking the river as a hospital site and offers to deed them to the town, to trustees or anyone undertaking the work of erecting a hospital. He invites the ministers and physicians to take hold of the matter and appoint a committee to confer with him. The site is a most beautiful one, the view magnificent and the location close to the depot and the town. [Review September 28, 2011] (apparently not yet annexed into town)
