Events for this year! 

George Washington Art Contest

The Museum was open February 18, 2018, for viewing and judging of the art work of the 27 finalists from the 3rd, 4th and 5th grades of the Washington Elementary School.  Three winners were selected based on their artistic work and awarded a Barnes and Noble gift card on February 20 at the Museum.  All 27 finalists were treated to a pizza lunch followed by a tour of the Museum.  The Historical Society has held this event for nine years.  The idea for the event was the suggestion of one of our members, Ron Gordon.  The funds used to sponsor the event come from our memorial fund originally created in memory of Virginia Bond, a long time member of the Society and resident of this community.

A George Washington display was presented  at the Graubner Library for the month of May.  Items were from the recently donated collection of Diane Shear and were placed in two large cabinets for viewing.
