When Don White was driving to Walmart
last Saturday, he drove past the cupola
nestled between Walmart and Lowe’s and
said to himself, ”That would be a great
mystery photo for Russ Dillingham.” He
could not believe it when he opened up
his newspaper the day after thinking that
and there it was. White grew up behind the
Winter Farm on Turner Street in Auburn that
Frank Winter lived on until he died at 100
years old. The cupola was taken off the top
of the farmhouse that sat next to Turner
Street (just about where the roundabout
is between Ruby Tuesday and Buffalo Wild
Wings in Auburn) by the developers of the
area. Those same developers asked White’s
father if they could name the shopping
center Whiteholm Plaza after the massive
farm that encompased much of the area.
White was glad to share this information,
but in a random drawing, Larry Heindl of
Lewiston was chosen as the winner. He
knew where it was located, but also wrote “I
have no clue what it is used for though, so, in
next Sunday’s paper you might expound on
that.” We hope the information above gives
him and others a little background on the
cupola that many believed was part of the
Whiteholm Farm but, in fact, was just behind
it on Turner Street. Heindl wins a $10 Dunkin’
Donuts gift card.
