Ken and Marge Cusick, long time residents of Lafayette, tell stories of their neighborhood and area which has changed dramatically since they came here. Cusicks moved to the Springhill Valley in the early 1950s, and continue to live here today.
Ken had a dentist practice in Berkeley that attracted many of his Lafayette neighbors. Marge taught at Montecito Elementary School for 5 years; during her first year she had over 50 students in each of the two kindergarten classes she taught each day. They raised 3 sons who attended Lafayette schools and were involved in Boy Scouts.
