Claybelt Chronicles ~ Volume FOUR

Claybelt Chronicles Volume Four

In 2006, we started interviewing our Temiskaming seniors to capture their stories and help keep the history of the area alive with as many first-hand accounts as possible.

Volume ONE was very successfully launched Nov 26th, 2009. Volume TWO was available when the Museum opened May 2010. Volume THREE was launched in time for the Christmas Market Nov 26, 2010.

Volume FOUR was launched when the Museum opened May 22, 2011

If you would like to order one, download this PDF form and mail it in with payment, or call a Museum director at 647-7200 or 647-5424 to get your copy. They are available at the Museum's Gift Shop, open in the summer while the Museum is open, other times by appointment.
