Members of the Stella Historical Society held their annual Remnants of the Past open house and crafts display last Saturday. Visitors toured Stella's early post office which was located in a house, much of whose furnishings have been preserved.
In the smithy, young Johnny Brousseau demonstrated basic techniques with the forge, hammer and anvil. In another location, society members exhibited old photos and demonstrated and sold other crafts.
Gaye Richards, one of Stella's longest lived residents, exhibited hundreds of photos she has collected over the years.
Cathlamet resident Cindy Faubion demonstrated soap making and candle making.
Puget Island resident Mary Ann Nelson tried her hand at dipping candles.
