Stories of Rosendale

Walter G. Williams’

Stories of Rosendale

On a cold winter’s night in 1986, Walter Williams sat with a handful of guests in front of a crackling fire overlooking Williams Lake and told what he knew of the history of Rosendale.  Fortunately, one of the guests had a camcorder.  What follows is an edited transcript of that videotape, presented here with the kind permssion of Walter’s daughter, Anita Williams Peck.

Here is a portion of the recording in Walter Williams’ own voice, with a slideshow, c/o Jason Adams, from YouTube:
