The legend of the cobblestones. A number of years ago,cobblestones (belgan blocks) were
removed from Main Street....according to a local business person, an Italian shoemaker

watching the scene, who could see things others could not, said that the removal of the
cobblestones marked the beginning of difficult times for Darby and indeed, there have been a
number of difficult years.

When the artist did the trolley mural at 9th and Main a few years ago, he made sure to include
cobblestones. Can replacing the blocks, at least symbolically, restore our balance and make

things go the other way?...Time alone will tell
