"Watershed History"



Historical Images & AV of The
Whitehall - Montague - White Lake Area

I began this project to share my historical collection
years ago and it is finally a reality. It's only a start.
Yes, it's not wildlife but why not share it?

It is a haphazard mix of what I've collected living in
the White Lake area: Some from family albums, from
projects I've worked on, images/video that I created,
material given to me & items of unknown origin
passed from one person to another over the years.

Much of the credit for the historical research in this site goes to Barb Brow. She is a seemingly endless source of local history
