The stories include those written by about 40 local residents plus others based upon video interviews. The purpose of the book is to document local history for future generations to enjoy. Topics include early schools, various farming families and operations, descriptions of life in the past on Main Street, Mars Hill, genealogy, hunting & fishing and history mysteries.
