Cass County Historical and Genealogical Society is a non-profit, tax exempt organization that was founded on February 20, 1963. Our goal is to preserve and make available, by publications and other means, the rich and interesting history of the people and places in Cass County, not only those who passed through to other communities. Today our goal remains the same.
As a society, dedicated to preserving the heritage of our county, we have made every effort to keep membership and publications costs to a minimum. Our society publishes a quarterly newsletter called "The Historian" in September, December, March, and June. Queries are free to members and limited to 50 words per issue.
