American Tragedy
 Centennial Events

The Town of Webb Historical Association features a year-long exhibition "A 1906 Tragedy in Big Moose" with boats, clothing and other artifacts associated with the case. Their newspaper and photo collections are especially interesting. Also on display is a tennis racket from George Ward's house that is probably not the one that was used at the trial.
