Join us at the Big Lake Historical Society's display of historical photos and artifacts. The exhibit is being held at a new location this year, in the Community Room at the Big Lake Volunteer Fire Department located at the north end of Big Lake, across from Big Lake School and next to the old fire station. This year's theme is How Timber and Mills Shaped the Big Lake Valley. The valley includes the communities of Walker Valley, Montborne, Ehrlich, Finn Settlement, Big Rock, Baker Heights, as well as Big Lake. This is an opportunity to better understand our past and appreciate the present. Docents will be present to share history, answer questions, tell stories, and guide tours of the old Big Lake town site. Melba Hall, BLHS Historian, will give a PowerPoint presentation of the history of Big Lake.
The exhibit will be Saturday, August 10th (10:00 AM - 5:00 PM) and Sunday, August 11th (10:00 AM - 5:00 PM). Postcards and copies of our book, Big Lake Valley will be available for purchase. There will be coffee, punch, and cookies to share as well as occasions to sit and visit with friends and neighbors about the past and present.
