I have an early half pint milk embossed "Camp/Wabasso/Farm". I dug it in New Hampshire, but don't know where it is from originally. Any ideas?

camp wabasso in Bradford, NH. Looks like there's a Girl Scouts camp there. There's also a 4H camp at camp wabasso in Jefferson County, NY. There people can see a real working dairy (Fulper's).

I saw the references to those places online-I guess "Camp Wabasso" is from some book. I'd love it to be from Bradford, New Hampshire but just don't know. The one in Jefferson County, New York just had their centennial, so they are of the right age.

Hey nhpharm,

I live in Bradford and I am doing some detecting in the area of this camp, I will ask about your bottle if you like.

Wabasso??? Isn't that some kind of hot sauce???

Great bottle. I have always liked finding stuff that no one in my area has heard of. Gets the digging juices flowing.

An update on this one...the Camp Wabasso in New York did not open until 1951 (dedicated on September 23, 1951), so it appears that this is from the Camp Wabasso in Bradford (South Sutton), New Hampshire, which is advertised as far back as 1921 as far as I can see. Makes sense since it was dug in New Hampshire! Anyone else seen one of these?
