The DuPont Historical Society and Museum are hosting Timothy Ransom, PhD speaking on his book “For the Good of the Order, the Braget Farm and Land Use in the Nisqually Valley”.
Told from the perspective of three generations of the Braget family who farmed the Nisqually property with a love and affinity for the land that reflected the agricultural background of their Norwegian ancestry; and the blood, sweat and tears they spilled there for almost 100 years.
Tim illustrates the difficulties American society has faced in balancing its needs for public and private lands and honoring those who have maintained our open spaces. In 2002, trying to protect his family’s legacy, Kenny Braget sold the farm to the Nisqually Tribe knowing they valued and shared his love of the land.
