markinch cupar dysart

Markinch, Cupar, and Dysart were named by CPR officials for towns in Scotland. Cupar and District Heritage Museum does have a few souvenirs from Cupar in our collection.  Cupar  in Fifeshire, Scotland is located north of Edinburgh and local residents who have visited it say it lies in a slight valley.  It is an agricultural town. The museum website is  Check it out or you can go to google maps and wander the streets this winter.

A bit different looking than us but still. I guess 110 years ago someone may have been homesick, or just wanted a bit of Scotland in the New World.  We did get a number of families from Scotland coming here in the early years.
