Etta had some wonderful memories of life in North River Mills and some wisdom for us today. Her stories made the old days come alive as we listened and helped greatly in putting together more of the story of our quaint village. Although Etta is 87 years young, her mind is very sharp as is her sense of humor. She was especially helpful in recalling details about people and buildings in the area. She is shown here talking to Rae Ellen McKee about some of her experiences along the South Branch River and her travels up and down the river valley on the railroad. She traveled about the county quite a bit. We hope to transcribe her conversation and make it part of the history of Hampshire County.
This oral history project is another in the series of community history programs of
