2009 Annual Member Meeting
The History of Livermore by Peter Crane
Article by: Steven Libby, BHS Member
Peter Crane was the guest speaker for the
2009 Annual Meeting held on October 20th.
He gave a narrated slide presentation on the once active
logging and sawmill community of Livermore.
Peter covered the short
life of Livermore from its beginnings in the 1870’s through to
the final closing of the mill in 1928.
His collection included scenes of the logging, railroad,
mill, homes, “mansions”, school, people, and the ruins of today.
Through his photos and extensive knowledge he brought the
now abandoned village back to life for his listeners.
Researchers like Peter
Crane are what preserves our history for future generations.
