Lots of interesting things are in store for local residents in 2016. Besides our annual Cemetery Tour, Ghost Tour and Christmas of Yesteryear programs, we are focusing on "intrepid women" from our past who blazed trails and made a difference in Shelby County.
In September we're excited to be co-sponsoring an impressive Civil War reenactment to be held in Tawawa Park! Stay tuned for more details.
