Book description
The North Tonawanda History Museum began as a grassroots all-volunteer effort in September 2003 and has grown in that time to an active community organization. Operating from an Oliver Street storefront since September 2004, plans are underway for a permanent Lumber City History Center and Twin Cities Welcome Center in the Downtown Historic District.

"North Tonawanda: The Lumber City" is a "love story finally told," the story of so many thousands upon thousands of individuals, organizations, and businesses that were woven together into the entity North Tonawandans so fondly refer to as just "NT" but which is proud to be the City of North Tonawanda. The book is expected to be the first in a series of full-length books, as requested by area residents and former residents in their contacts with the three year old museum organization.

"North Tonawanda: The Lumber City" has been decribed by some area historians who have had advance opportunities to read it as a "monumental first effort," and a significant contribution to the city of North Tonawanda, its residents and former residents, and area historical institutions. It is a general overall account of the city's development and shares many stories of the people who were part of the life of the city.

Museum Director Donna Zellner Neal is editor of the volume, but a number of contributing authors have furnished parts of the text.

"It is not just a book of photos," said Neal. "About 20% of the volume is photographs. The unique and special history of our city could not be told with photos alone."

Future volumes planned will focus in detail on historical homes and other sites, industrial heritage, and specific periods of time. [from the back cover]
