Steven Hileman grew up in Geeseytown and, like many little boys, he drew lots of pictures, especially of dinosaurs.
His mother remembers one time when he drew only the dinosaur’s tail, a long tail running all through the picture. It tickled her and his grandmother, who was watching him that day.

This painting by Steven Hileman, a Geeseytown native who now lives in Maine, is “Winter’s Mantel.”
