This week we feature the South Sebastian County Historical Society. Their mission is: “The Preservation of Our Area’s History and the Stories of Our Past.” The society is a 501c3 nonprofit organization, and own and operate such sites as the Old Jail Museum, the Coal Miner’s Memorial, the 1848 Vineyard Cabin, the Redwine Pioneer Schoolhouse, and the Ole Barn at 307 E. Town Square. As a nonprofit, they have the sole responsibility of these locations and rely on community support.
“We present many community events including our Annual Opening Day, Buried Treasure Graveside Tales, The Airing of the Quilts, Christmas at the Cabin and Music on the Porch. Our monthly meetings feature well known guest speakers. All are welcome to attend. It’s a great place to learn history and make new friends. (We are not having live meetings at this time. The Museum is temporarily open by appointment only.)”
