Stories, Memories and Thoughts for Packwood ...
We love to hear the stories that people remember from their youth, especially those tales about where they grew up.
Since the best and most interesting history are the reminiscences told by one person to another, we want to try and record some of them before these little slices of history are lost forever.
If you have a tale, reminiscence or other thoughts to tell of Packwood, about the places you knew when young, we would like to include them here.
If you're interested, we have some Guidelines about the stories that we would like to place here - please see our Story Guidelines.
