Many Association Members do not live in the Town of Webb. Some have vacation homes in our beautiful woodland region. Others are descendents of early pioneer residents or hotel or camp owners, former employees and their families, or "snow-birds" who live part-time in the township. We send out our newsletter, generally twice a year, to keep members updated on the Association in appreciation of their support. Please consider an annual membership donation so you too can help us to continue sharing our great heritage and keep the Goodsell Memorial Museum open FREE of Charge year-round in Old Forge NY

We also have a montly electronic newsletter called the Goodsell Gazette, to be added to our mailing list please contact our offices
