Preserving the past is best done by sharing the past, not leaving it in the hands of a few.
Irondale, may be considered a ghost town by some today, but was once the site of a large iron-mining operation and the focus of various roads and railroads. The whole story of this community needs to be recorded - in print, pictures, something - before the information is lost.
Anyone with a tale to tell is asked to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org Photographs of any and all sorts are most welcome. They will be scanned and safely returned within days.
The Bark Lake Cultural Developments is a volunteer run not-for-profit charitable organization that is responsible for the purchase, restoration, maintenance & programming of Irondale's heritage designated church building as well as researching & sharing of Irondale's interesting history.
All donations are most appreciated. Please visit the Donate page today.
