Claybelt Chronicles Vol. 5

Claybelt Chronicles Volume FIVE

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. We've worked hard to help our area's history come alive through the voices of those who were there. These books contain interviews with our seniors who have connections with the pioneer families who first came to the area between 1880s and 1940s. Each volume contains interviews and a photo taken at the time of the interview or from some other source. These books are very popular and widely-sought after.

If you would like to order one, download this PDF form and mail it in with payment, or call the Museum 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. They are also available year round at the book store in Cobalt and online at White Mountain Publications.
