Spring Break At Gum Springs

We were happy to welcome Diamond, Noah, and William Jones to the museum on Tuesday, March 29, 2016.  The sun was shining and kids home on Spring Break - couldn't have asked for a better day to make a road trip and share some history of where "Dad" grew up.  Ron Chase, President, Gum Springs Historical Society and Museum, provided a tour of the exhibits and engaged in an informative conversation about the history of Gum Springs founding families - Belfield, Brown, Chase, Gray, King and Young.

William is no stranger to Gum Springs or Route 1.  He grew up on the Route 1 Corridor (Belford Manor--behind the Popeye's, Huntington, Woodlawn Gardens, and Cherry Arms).  After attending Whitman and Mt Vernon High, William went off to college earning his undergraduate, and graduate degrees (Masters of Business Administration (MBA)), along with passing the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) and Chartered Global Management Accountant (CGMA) exams. William is currently employed as the Controller with Southeastern Universities Research Association in Washington D.C.
