Please mark the following two dates on your calendar.

 

     The first date to remember is April 12. Because Easter is on the first Sunday of April, our normal first Sunday program will be held on April 12 at 2:00 PM. This program will be given by Rosalyn Cummings of Bedford, IA on how quilt squares stitched in Athelstan, IA over 80 years ago showed up at a Palm Springs, CA yard sale and returned to the Taylor County Museum in 2014. 

In addition, the state fair history qualifiers from the Clarinda Middle School will be giving their winning presentations and posters before and directly after the program,

These kids did an amazing job and the winning was well deserved.

 

The other date to remember is June 20, 2015 when we will be hosting History Day with very interesting people and displays. More information to follow.

When visiting the museum, check out our new displays and gifts for sale. Several new items have been added and an updating of the area has been done. If you are unable to come visit us and would like to purchase an item please contact us for more information.
