Back in 2014 as part of the Gardner Digital Memory Bank project, Blair Williams of Cumberland County Historical Society interviewed Tom Benjey about the Craigheads. Because the video is lengthy, we are cutting it into clips by topic. The first three clips have been loaded onto the Craighead House website at http://CraigheadHouse.org/History. That tab was chosen because the focus of the interview was about the history of the Craighead family.

50 Years ago on October 2, 1968, President Johnson signed the Wild & Scenic Rivers Act, putting it into law. The act, written largely by the Craighead twins, was what Frank Jr. and John considered their greatest achievement. The Fall 2018 edition of Craighead House Chronicles focuses on that work. It can be downloaded here: Fall 2018 Craighead House Chronicles
