‘2012 History Course’ participants tour “new” Forsyth, comparing 1950s-era photographs with current views of the town.

On Sunday, September 9th, 2012, visitors to the White River Valley Historical Society were able to learn more about the variety of free educational courses and events the Society offers. The presentation will showcased Forsyth Boys & Girls Club members who participated in the two summer history courses offered this year, including interviews with the older students.

In these filmed visits, the students discuss the life and times of the Forsyth-area person they researched, as well as what they learned about the old and new town. Other courses offered in 2012 included research workshops and multi-week courses, a lecture session on the Civil War, and numerous presentations to local schools and other groups.
