History Day is almost upon us!

On Sunday, August 17th, 2014 the society will be hosting this great event at the historic Silver Mountain Station, located 45 minutes southwest of Thunder Bay at the intersection of Highways 588 and 593. The formal portion of the festivities will begin at 2:00 with greetings and presentations. Food and refreshments will be available, with the proceeds benefiting the society.

This year’s event will feature two very interesting guest speakers. Nancy Perozzo, with the Friends of Grain Elevators, will be describing her organization’s efforts to preserve the history of those iconic structures in Thunder Bay. Bruce Kerfoot is the owner of the Gunflint Lodge in Minnesota and was born and raised on the lake. He will be sharing with us his experiences of growing up surrounded by the history and culture of the area.
