They also have a lot of art books in the Research Library. The society looks forward to a successful year and hope you will join and contribute to that success. Your participation would be valued highly.
Bryant Pond is fortunate indeed to have the Historical Society Museum. Woodstock people and visitors as well enjoy the exhibits they offer. They also have research materials. You will be warmly welcome at a meeting. The society has a few items you could use as Christmas gifts. Especially consider Ruby Emery's "Hamlin's Gore" for only $20.
Bryant Pond is a lovely little town with friendly people and great scenery. Do visit.
