The Anderson Falls Heritage Society has two more wonderful events planned for this year. First, local multimedia personality and great regional historian Gordie Little will be presenting Ghost Stories this Sunday, Oct. 6, at 2 p.m. in the Heritage House Museum located at 96 Clinton Street in Keeseville. I’ve had the pleasure of hearing Gordie tell ghost stories before and it is a tremendous amount of fun. Then on Wednesday, Oct. 16 at 6:30 p.m. again in the Heritage House Museum, Dr. Gordon Pollard will be giving a presentation on Iron Industry in Clintonville. I have found the Anderson Falls Heritage Society has an incredibly strong dedication to local history, and I’m sure this presentation will be of the same wonderful caliber. Be sure to attend both of these events.
Chris Maron, Executive Director of CATs, recently emailed me regarding Champlain Area Trails hosting a hamlet-to-hamlet hike on Sunday, Oct. 13, between Wadhams and Essex. As Maron explains, “To recognize our progress and have a fun Columbus weekend activity, we’re hosting this hike that will start at Dogwood Bakery and end at the Essex Inn.” The multi community hike begins at 11 a.m. It will follow a series of trails for about 9 miles through forests and fields, along streams and a series of beaver ponds, over the north side of Phinney Hill and the east side of Boquet Mountain, and then follow Route 22 for the final two miles into Essex.
Again enjoy all that our community has to offer.
