During World War II, Madison Cooper hosted weekends at home for servicemen referred by the local USO. His long-time housekeeper Bertha Walton prepared wonderful meals for the men, and Cooper engaged his guests in long conversations by the living room bay window or on the front porch. We are pleased to continue this welcoming tradition with local nonprofits.
