TALK LOCAL HISTORY
Starting on Tuesday, February 12, 2013, the Franconia Museum will sponsor a local history talk at the Museum in the Franconia Government Center, 6121 Franconia Road. The program will begin at 10 a.m. and last until subjects are exhausted! Refreshments will be served and bathroom breaks are tolerated. The talks will be held the second Tuesday of each month. Join Franconia native Sonny Wright and other Museum Board members for a lively discussion of the good old days. At this first meeting, the Board is particularly interested in the location of the old gravel pits that dotted Franconia more than 60 years ago. We’d also like to hear personal stories about the pits, those that can be told of course! Long-time residents and newcomers are cordially invited. Browse through the museum while you are there!
