Old Town Philosophy

Peter Chausse included Sherwood in his educational walking tour again this year. Historian-Philosophers June Reynolds and Clyde List joined the discussion with Chausse and his students. We discussed "The New Urbanism" at Rudy Olsen Memorial Gas Pump Park, Einstein's Theory of Relativity at the Model Train Exhibit, American Literature ("Mainstreet" by Sinclair Lewis), and horticulture (i.e., Chausse pointing out the amazing variety of trees along the way). Most of the visitors were school teachers interested in the Sherwood Historical Society's success with youth involvement.

The diversity of trees and foliage and the diversity of buildings makes for an interesting place to live. Now there's a philosophy for ya.Urban planners are always looking for these things.
