STRATTON — The Dead River Area Historical Society will pay tribute to local veterans from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 16.

Over the years many local people have enlisted in the military, served their country during war and peace times and have been a credit to their community. The society is dedicating Aug. 16 to those men and women.

Paper Talk magazine is featuring people who served in World War II from Franklin County in the upcoming edition. The society will have those forms available and information as well. The deadline is Monday, Aug. 31.

On display in the museum are artifacts, manuscripts and photographs that have been donated or loaned by interested townspeople and descendants of original families of the Dead River Region. Collections from 1850 on include 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 a host of memorabilia from native homesteads.

For more information, call Mary Henderson at 246-2271.
