Book's author remedies lack of Pierce County town's history

Used to be, the Pierce County Historical Association (PCHA) didn't have much about the history of the Town of Hartland among its holdings.

This lack of records on the town's past has been remedied. Hartland native Roland Krogstad has written "Hartland Heritage: A History of Hartland Township," a 462-page book containing information from the town's pre-settlement through 2009.
