Visitors check out the newly erected history kiosk at the Willsboro History Center. A standing-room-only crowd attended the recent opening ceremony for the kiosk, which features eight large panels depicting the town's 250-year history. Much of the $44,000 used for the facility's construction came through the J.C. Kellogg Foundation and Patty Paine. The kiosk was dedicated to Ken and Marilyn Cole "for their love of the beauty and history of Willsboro, Lake Champlain and the Adirondacks." Willsboro Town Historian Ron Bruno collaborated with graphics designer Rob Powell and editor Mary Bell to create the historic panels. The kiosk is located by the State Route 22 bridge spanning the Boquet River and Paine Memorial Library in Willsboro.
