Claybelt Chronicles Vol 5

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.

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 the Museum's Gift Shop, open in the summer while the Museum is open, other times by appointment.
