Inspired by Carol Morrow, the historical society has produced a window into local history in the form of a calendar each year since 2004. This one features contributions by men of the area. An example is the story of George Salmond, born in 1884 on the property that became Salmond's Resort on Mississagogon Lake. You'll read about moving his house from the Big Dipper Mine and marvel at this accomplishment using primitive technology. Back issues of calendars are archived in the museum and we are sometimes asked for a photocopy of a picture, or story. Much research has been done on historical businesses, people, places, schools and roads; just one more source of information for future generations.
