Pleasant Title

It is with deep regret and our sympathy to the family and friends of Bert George that we announce his passing on April 26, 2020.  Bert was among the original founders of this Historical Society.  For more about his remarkable life please read the obituary at this link.  

I'm a button.  I don't do anything.  Just sitting here.

Scotty Mallett recently volunteered to be our railroad historian and we couldn't have found anyone more qualified.  Take a look at his work in our railroad section.

Caveat:This site will not work well on your phone. Should be fine on i-pad or tablet.  .

Our Archives: Books, Documents, Physical Objects, Names Lists, Cemetery Burial Lists; Kathleen has been working hard to organize what we have.  

Remember The Mountain Ear Newspaper?  There are more than 100 excellently researched articles of local interest at this link.  We can thank Jane Golden and Steve Eastman and many others for this historically valuable collection.  This link will open in a new window.

Do you ever wonder how many people visit your Bartlett Historical Society Website?

It's more than you might think.  For the 6 month period ended July 31 we had a total of 3,431 visitors.  Our average visitor looked at 2 or 3 pages and spent an average of 3 minutes on the site. Some stayed as long as 15 minutes and some stayed less than one minute. Some only looked at one page and others looked at as many as 25 pages during their session.  There were 8,000 individual page views.  Our most popular pages were the Indexes, Livermore, Railroad and Lady Blanche House.  Each of our 190 pages was visited at least once.  Not bad statistics for our little town.
