Hi and Lois Sunday page, July 1, 2001.

As we have mentioned here before, since Chance Browne and I both live in Wilton, Connecticut, we occasionally use it as the setting for some of the scenes in Hi and Lois. To draw the overhead view in the drop panel, Chance climbed to the roof of a building across the street from the Wilton athletic fields where the annual Fourth of July festivities are held.

Dinner with Dad

The Cobbs Mill Inn in Weston, Connecticut.

The Cobbs Mill Inn.

The Cobbs Mill Inn in Weston, Connecticut dates back to 1749. The central or main building was originally a lumber mill, grist mill and cider mill owned and operated by Eleazor Sturges and Ephraim Jackson.  In the 1800’s it was known as Davis’ Mill and later as Carver’s Mill.  Rye, wheat, apples and timber, harvested from Weston fields, orchards and forests, were ground, pressed or cut at the Mill.  Lumber activity ceased in the early 1900’s due to a severe blight, which devastated the American chestnut tree.

Chance designed the coupons to look like Dot and Ditto drew them and added spaced borders to encourage readers to cut them out. We have no idea if anyone ever did.
