"They Sawed Up a Storm" - Background on the well attended Presentation Aug. 29, 2006 at Tracy Library given by Sarah Smith, UNH Forestry Industry Specialist, about the impact of the Hurricane of '38 on New England's forests and how a group of dedicated women operated a sawmill on Turkey Pond in Concord, NH, to process logs salvaged from the hurricane. Messer Pond was also used for log storage. Many logs still remain here and occasionally float to the surface.
