Every third Tuesday, these historical presentations will be brought to you at the First Congregational Church, a short board meeting Timber Museum Board meets at 11:30 a.m. and the WEHS meeting starts at noon.
November’s program will be a presentation of some of the Historical Society’s old slide photographs from the late 1800s to mid-1900s.
