Historian seeks photos of towns under reservoir


Andes — The Andes Society for History and Culture is planning to erect a kiosk that will be placed on its Pleasant Valley Meeting House grounds this year.

Plans are for the kiosk to commemorate the four communities that were taken for the building of the Pepacton Reservoir.

To enhance the kiosk, the society is looking for photos from the communities — Shavertown, Union Grove, Arena and Pepacton — or the farms between the hamlets. Anyone who has photos that can be loaned for a short time (they will be returned after being copied), should contact Bob Jacobson at 676-3238 or Harold Haugeto at 676-4694.
