The Norwood Area Historical Society will host a viewing of a 1930s-era Rex Beach movie outdoors on the side of the Schoolhouse sometime in September or early October. Watch our Calendar for details.

Rex Beach, born in Atwood in 1877, went from prospecting to writing novels. His first and most famous novel, The Spoilers, was based on a true story of corrupt government officials stealing goldmines from prospectors, which he witnessed while prospecting in Nome, Alaska.

He kept writing and after much success in his literary endeavors many of his works were adapted into successful films.
