Memories of Wilmot: Clara Langley

In this historical documentary, Clara Langley shares stories about teaching in schools from Maine to Maryland and then at the Wilmot Center School. The building in which she taught now houses the Wilmot Public Library. Clara met Frank E. Langley in the early 1950s, and they married and raised their family in Wilmot.

Two interviews were recorded by Wilmot Historical Society volunteers. The first interview (below) was recorded at Clara’s house in Wilmot New Hampshire on December 15, 2009. The second interview was recorded on November 30, 2018 at the Wilmot Public Library with Fred Ogmundson, Carol MacDonald, and Mary Jane Ogmundson. (link to 2nd interview)
