Growing up in Lewiston

A story by Kathy Bevcar from 1960s - 1980s

Kathy Bevcar talks about growing up in Lewiston in the 1960s and 70s.

Growing up in Lewiston when I did was great time. My mother worked in the Libby Mill and father worked at the Brunswick Naval Air Base. Both my parents were hard working and provided for us four children the best they could.

In the 1980s things went downhill with many stores closing but Lewiston has had a revival.
