"Here is a Wisconsin farm girl’s story from 1922, sharply recalled eight decades later. The storyteller was my mother, Helen Williamson, who grew up in this region and attended a one story country school, very similar to the Camp Nine School at our Heritage Center. I love to picture her as a sensitive young girl, so very troubled by the theft of a pin." – Sara DeLuca http://www.nrheritagecenter.org/blog/hat-pins
