These are some of the classmates on the Class of 1957 Bessemer High School reunion committee that presented Diane Hyche, President of the Board of Directors for the Bessemer Hall of History Museum with a $746.45 check to be used to preserve Bessemer High School memorabilia. The class of 1957 offers a challenge to other Bessemer High School classes...as they have reunions that they donate excess funds to the museum.
The museum will be CLOSED from 11:30 to 1:30 on Thursday 7-12-12 so we can attend a presentation by Linda Nelson of the Jefferson County Historical Commission. If you would like to attend this presentation contact the Bessemer Public Library at 428-7882 for more information.
WANTED! Old photos of the Bessemer area such as the Spinning Wheel, Pineview Beach, Merry Go Round, Drennen's, Cherokee Beach, the mines and industry, downtown, schools, churches, businesses, etc. Bring your photos by the Bessemer Hall of History Museum so we can scan them and give the original back to you. Or you can donate them to the museum collection so it can continue to grow for future generations to enjoy.
