Mound City Historical Society looking to reboot membership

Updated: 3 days ago

MOUND CITY – The Mound City Historical Society is looking for new members interested in preserving the history of the city and surrounding area. With the release and broadcast this year of The Original Jayhawkers, a documentary featuring and produced by Mound City area residents, the society is hoping that interest will help rejuvenate the organization.

Maribeth Kehl, treasurer of the society, said the society is welcoming members to the organization after membership waned in recent years.

The society will meet at 7p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 29, at the F&M Bank Community Building next to the bank at Fifth and Main streets in Mound City. Everyone is welcome to attend.

Volunteers recently removed a decaying porch roof from the home at the Mound City Historical Park next to the grocery store on Main Street, and a contractor is expected to begin work replacing the roof soon.

Other organization officers include Ron Nickelson, president; Gary Schmitz, vice-president; and Lorna Turley, treasurer.
