STRATTON – The Dead River Area Historical Society will have a Haunted House at the home of Lee and Mary Henderson, 180 Main St., from 5 to 8 p.m. Monday, Oct. 31. The Hendersons have volunteered their home for the fund-raiser and welcome the public.

So much restoration work has been done in the museum that it has to be heated. The metal ceiling has been restored, and walls and partitions have been painted.

Artifacts, manuscripts and photographs from 1850 have been donated or loaned from townspeople and descendants of the original families of the Dead River Region. Exhibits include a collection of old carpentry and logging tools, china, glass, church organ, furniture from native families, a complete schoolroom, a memorial room to the “lost” towns of Flagstaff and Dead River, the lineage of several native families and memorabilia from native homesteads.

The building has to be heated in order to keep all this preserved for future generations. Donations will be requested benefit the museum’s heating cost.

There will be treats for the children. For more information, call Mary Henderson at 246-2271.
