Crimpville Comments
The "Crimpville Comments" were begun by Edward Sawyer in 1970 as a private paper.  Mr. Sawyer was the owner of the High Street Market at the corner of High Street and North Main Street and also lived at that location.  He was concerned about the impact of the reconstruction of North Main Street (Route 126) from Hartford Avenue to the center of Bellingham.  In order to fight the changes which he felt were going to heavily impact his business, he put out the first "Crimpville Comments" protesting the changes.

Mr. Sawyer subsequently converted this brochure into the historical paper that it now is.  As first chairman of the Bellingham Historical Commission he used the paper as an outlet for the dissemination of historical information to the town and any other interested parties.  It has been published every year since.
