In 2006, the Little Claybelt Homesteaders Museum 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.
First the seniors with roots in the pioneer days of Temiskaming were interviewed. Then the tapes were transcribed, then edited to place the text into a first person perspective. This series of books contains a total of 324 interviews The complete list of people interviewed for all volumes is on the Little Claybelt Homesteaders Museum page, linked here. It will link you to the volume that person's interview appears. This is the final volume in this series.
Get a great look at our past from a personal viewpoint of the people who helped shape the present. If you're in the area, the Museum is usually open in the summer. The books are available from the Museum Gift Shop there as well.
