Pioneer Stories

Gold initially drew people to this area, but it must have been the majestic beauty that kept many people here. The pioneers who settled and homesteaded this country were faced with many challenges. The pioneers succeeded in taming this wild undeveloped land, making it their home and a place where others would also call home.

While searching through the Archives at the Jack-Lynn Memorial Museum I came across a little red duo tang that had 'Horsefly Pioneers, by Grades 4-5, 1984' written on the front. Inside were essays written by these students all those years ago. Three are selected for your enjoyment.
