New ‘old’ pictures and more on website

New on the Discover San Miguel website: Two pictures from early San Miguel days provided by Louis Bayer III. Accompanied by a bit of family history, the pictures show his great-grandfather’s longgone Bayer homestead and the blacksmith shop where his grandfather worked before ultimately purchasing it. Also see a profile of the San Miguel Garbage Co. which is the February business of the month.
