~ Memories of Alger County ~

A picture is worth a thousand words, it's said.  Sometimes, the picture completes the story, and sometimes a picture is all there is to remember an event or a person. 

This section is where we'll place all our Alger County photographs, from people to places.  If you have pictures you'd like to see displayed at this site, please contact me.

Clicking on the thumbnail pictures will take you to a larger version.
