A new Third presentation on the history of the land that would become Highbanks.  The program begins with a brief look-back at the two previous programs.  The focus of this program is how the land was being used, and what life was like for the people who lived there during/after the Civil War in the Middle Victorian Era.

Ms. Mattingley researched who owned the various parcels of land, and what we know about them.  Ms. Mattingley says of the programs “I try to present interesting stories about life in those times, and juicy biographical tidbits if I can find them.”
