They Sawed Up A Storm - Weeks State Park Event
Thursday, 07/28/2016 (07:00 PM - 09:00 PM)

Join Sarah Smith, author of They Sawed Up A Storm.   In 1942, a group of New Hampshire women operated a sawmill on the shores of Turkey Pond, in Concord. New Hampshire. The sawmill, one of two on the pond, was built by the US Forest Service to saw up what remained of the logs stored in the water from the 1938 hurricane.

 

Sarah will present how she first learned about the women's mill from John Willey, the son of one of the women who worked there. John's mother, Laura, had a scrapbook which was a tattered collection of snapshots and newspaper clippings depicting the women at work between 1942 and 1943. Sarah's book begins with an account of the hurricane of 1938 and the path of destruction it left from Long Island to northern New England. Over 600 lives were lost, cities were flooded and property damaged was extensive. Join us for an exciting adventure through the great hurricane of 1938 and the determination of the group of New England women! Go to www.TurkeyPond.com to learn more.
