our history

“The town of Raymond is just a name on a map to some people; but to others, who take the time to talk with its people, Raymond is more. Raymond is not really a typical town with superficial buildings and streets but, instead, is more a way of life – – a feeling. Although this is a difficult thing to describe, there is a certain amount of it in the very history of the town as I’m sure you’ll soon see.”
