Paul Misko History Talk

Last Saturday Paul Misko gave a talk on the founding of Woodland Valley in the 1850's. It was hosted by Hawley and Joyce Botchford and was a huge success. Over 20 folks attended.

Here are some pictures, taken by Joyce Botchford​, black and white pic is of Col​.​ Snyder.

Some in attendance were the Simpsons, Piels, Mac Donalds, Congdons, Rolf Reiss, and the special guest was Barbara Mac Adam from the Hood Museum at Dartmouth, who provided some great info about the Woodland Tannery painting. Hawley gave us a good dose of history on the Woodworth and Beach families, who along with Col. Snyder, founded Woodland.
