Margo Marrone’s Plymouth Report

What a wonderful celebration at the Historical Society Open House on
Sunday! The exhibits were wonderful, even though I understand they are
not complete yet, as there are boxes of artifacts still to be unpacked.
The Walter B Claflin slide show was so interesting & the large crowd
that attended was able to provide insight into some of the homes &
buildings. It was wonderful to see so many people there to acknowledge
the hard work of the volunteers & to take such an interest in our town
history.

Most of us did not know anything about Walter B Claflin, but apparently
he & his wife, Bell were residents of Plymouth, living in what later
became known as the Hutchinson House on the Kingdom Rd in Tyson. Betty
Jarvi had donated the negatives that were then transformed into this
wonderful slide presentation. One of the connections was likely that
Betty & Bell were both members of Tyson Ladies Aid.

Bill Jarvi & daughters, Kristen & Lauren (along with son-n-law Lenny)
were on hand for this dedication to Betty & were able to clarify some of
the locations in the pictures. There is also a Resource section in
Betty’s honor.

A print of a Rook’s Mining Company map was used as a fund-raiser. The
highest bidders were Claire King & Roger Calrsten of 94 Library Rd
(formerly known as Liberty Hall). They were so pleased to have this
piece of history of the area & know that their children will excited to
see it. Funds & volunteers are always needed. Check out the website:
