The Hamilton Historical Society needs your help. We are chronicling the affect of the pandemic on Hamilton. Please post your pictures (no limit to the number of pictures) on our page, with a comment and names of the people (if you want). The pictures can be of any way you are coping during this trying time and how different Hamilton looks right now.. We want this to be a town wide project, with as many people participating as possible.
Thank you.
