In January 2020 the historical society celebrated it’s 20th anniversary, but we could not hold a grand celebration because we were in the throes of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Society does have much to celebrate. For a town of only ____ residents and a society that is only 20 years old, we have accomplished a lot!
In 2000 the Society acquired, for $1, the former Methodist Church building on State Road 2A, a vacant building in substantial disrepair. Immediately, Society members began stabilizing the building to prevent further deterioration. The building had come with the land it was situated on and only enough extra land to access the building, but Society members were not discouraged. They were excited to have a building of historical significance for a home.
