2009 Annual Member Meeting

The History of Livermore by Peter CranePeter 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.
