Memories of Bowen 60’s & 70’s

Everyone has a story. Each memory adds something special to the Museum & Archives. They provide inspiration, motivation against adversities, and a connection to the past. Researchers, family members, and the community come into the archives searching for a story from the past that provides a meaningful connection to them in some way, shape, or form.
