History is all around you - locations and objects in the community, like names of streets and landmarks, reflect the long heritage of those gone before. Learning about the past helps you understand that 'history' is made up of individuals - like themselves - who in their own ways contributed to the story of the region. This story is fascinating and worth finding and preserving!
