Storytelling time for historical society

It was show and tell time at the Christmas get-together for the Calhoun Historical Society Thursday evening. President Bob Bonar displayed a sword donated by Tommy Carper, son of the late Mattie Carper and World War I "leggins" and photos donated by Emily Gainer.

Historian and writer Joy Gilchrist Stalnaker, who was scheduled to speak, was unable to attend the meeting.

The December meeting was held at the home of Carl and Helen Morris of Grantsville, after a soup, with lots of extras dinner served to the membership.

Most of the evening was spent storytelling, topics ranging from the oil and gas magnate Godfrey L. Cabot to early roads and trails leading to the county.
