Historic Hike into Beechwood
Cameron County Historical Society is hosting a Historic Walk through Beechwood on
October 28th at 10 am.
Local historians, John Kautz and Wendy Davis, will guide the hike. Beechwood was once a booming community with the area rich in lumber and railroad industry. It is beautiful, peaceful area that is rich with history. We will talk about some Beechwood stories and look at some old pictures to help visualize what it looked in its heyday. There will also be an opportunity to climb the hill side into the hidden darkness of the Glover Cemetery and pay our respects to those laid to rest there.
In the event of inclement weather, the hike will be rescheduled. The cancellation, if required, will be announced on WLEM radio. All interested hikers will meet at the "road side rest" just outside of Truman at 10am for instructions and potential carpooling.
This no-cost hike is sponsored by Cameron County Historical Society and is open the the public. Donations are welcome to help to support Historical Society activities!
