Mrs. McGinnis’ Goat, 1912 (Richmond Highlands), Photo #SHM 554

The photo of a goat which ran in last Thursday's SAN (Diggin' Shoreline is Dishing the Dirt) from the Shoreline Historical Museum prompted this recollection from Sandra Reynolds, historian for Ronald United Methodist Church. 

The picture of the goat was taken on the old Ronald Methodist Church porch. The goat belonged to a Mrs. McGinnis and it spent a good deal of its time on the church porch. 
One day the teachers at Ronald School across the street left the front door open because it was a warm day. The goat went into the cloak room and ate all of the children's lunches. Mrs. McGinnis had to make soup for the whole school that day.
