Box of pictures

I was given a box of old photographs that I believe are of Grace Junker Regnault and her family. No names are written on any photos, but they were in the trash at her home on Chestnut St. as her home was being cleaned out after her death at age 101. Grace was the child of Catherine Heyl Junker and William Junker of Church St. Milltown. Her family were parishioners of St Paul's church. 

I will scan and post the pictures on this website, but if you are a relative or descendant of Grace and would like the originals, they should rightfully be yours.

"The Michelin Tire Company: The American Adventure"

Hello All,

I found a really cool pdf on keepmilltownhistoric.org . It goes super in depth into Michelin's stay in Milltown, as well as their other branches in America in the early 21st century If you dig, you can find some really cool information.
