NOTES FROM THE PRESIDENT:
When the Webster County Historical Society acquired the former Carnegie Library building in 1997, they established
goals to meet in order to collect and preserve the history of Webster County. These goals were planned to be
accomplished by using the former library building for a museum to display items, pictures, documents, and newspaper
accounts of the past history of our county.
The Century Club and Century Club Memorial plaques in the Museum have been updated and now include all donations
and memorials made through May 1st. Century Club and Memorials are available to anyone making a donation of $100
or more and are an excellent way of recognizing your family’s place in Webster County’s history.
*Meetings are held monthly the 4th Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the Museum. Everyone Welcome
The Museum opened May 7th with a special exhibit on Photography. The schedule will be the same as last year,
Sundays 1-4 P.M. and Monday—Friday 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., through October. Want to help? Call 468-7407.
The Society has made application with the Missouri Historical Records Grant Program for a $5,000 grant to help
purchase preservation supplies for the Museum. Thanks to those who helped compile information for the application.
REMEMBER to shop the Museum Gift Shop for your gift-giving needs. In addition to the many assorted items available, including the limited-edition ornaments and Jerry Rice prints, we also have reprinted copies of the 1880 Marshfield and Her Cyclone, 1880 Goodspeed, 1955 History of Webster County, and an Index to the afore-mentioned books. These books are soft-backed, spiral-bound and sell for $10.00 each.
A new item is the 1909 Plat Map of Webster County which is indexed and sells for $7.00. All proceeds benefit the Historical Society.
Volunteers continue to work on probate court documents at the courthouse. This has now been moved to the southeast corner of the basement. If you can work an hour or two now and then, please do so.
This winter, perhaps in January, February, and March, we will again make an extended effort to resume work on this project.
The Museum will open at 9:00 a.m. on July 4th and remain open until 4:00 p.m. Volunteers for the 4th are being scheduled in one hour increments. If you can help, call the Museum.
