A grand weekend with cake, pie, historical presentations and costumed reenactors. The weekend began Friday evening and ran through Sunday with free museum admission and birthday cake as long as it lasted. Saturday night our Quiz Master, Bill Margeson provided us with a lively and challenging evening of Trivia Quizzing at the DeSoto House Hotel. We had wonderful turnout and a good time throughout the weekend. Here’s just a glimpse. And Honest Abe and General, U.S. Grant were our brilliant auctioneers at the Pie Auction – great job – yummy pies from local bakers.
Nearly 100 people attended the kickoff reception on Feb. 19 to greet the MSR team and hear of the process which will unfold over the next six months. Community input and sessions with key stakeholders will result in an Interpretive Plan for a revitalized history museum plus a space and site plan.
