Ralls County Historical Society Museum
Work has begun on the new Ralls County Historical
Society Inc. museum/library at 120 East Main
Street , Perry Missouri. Over the years the
society has collected historic artifacts,
articles, books, genealogies and other
items of historical interest that will be featured there.
One of the features of the museum will be many old photos of historic
events, people, schools and churches of Ralls
County and the surrounding
communities. Any donation or
loan of old photos or other items that could be featured is welcomed. For
people wanting to keep their photos a service to scan old photos is being
planed. The library will be stocked with histories, censuses, atlases, genealogies,
cemetery records, church records, and reference books of
and Northeast Missouri . The hours have not been
set yet and will likely vary with the seasons and attendants. As soon as
possible there will a grand opening for the public to see the hard work
of our membership. It will operate on memberships, public donations, books
sales and voluntary donation at the site.

project write Ralls County Historical Society, P.
