STRATTON — The Dead River Area Historical Society will pay tribute from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, July 19, to “People Who Worked in the Woods,” better know as loggers.

Anyone who has a story or photographs to share about woods work is invited to join the event. The special days are not presentations, but a gathering of people knowledgeable about the featured subject.

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.
