'Rainy River Valley: Beginnings'

Please be sure to get your copy of 'Rainy River Valley: Beginnings', featuring the work of photographer, William Hampden Tener, who resided here in the late 1890s and early 1900s. Researched and organized by historian and author, Merv Ahrens, the book is an invaluable collection of images from our past, particularly as it portrays our community at work and play. The book is available at the Museum and Betty's of Fort Frances for $25.

Strategic Plan

With the assistance of Sandra Brunetta, we are gathering the personal histories of our residents. If you would like to help out, the form is below. This should be used as a guide only as each person is different. Once collected, we hope you will leave a copy with the museum. Thank you.
