Living History

Sometimes it’s all to easy to forget when you are living in history. Though the covid-19 pandemic is wearing on society, now is the best time to record your thoughts on this historic event as to let future generations know our thoughts and feelings today – as it is happening. Feel free to fill out the form below. If you wish to remain anonymous, type the word “anonymous” in the field asking your name. Your responses will be recorded and put into an album that will be available, for years to come, in the MCHS archive library.
Thanks, and stay healthy.

History Quest

The McLeod County Historical Society’s monthly television spot on HCVN will feature a new name with a new twist.  Formerly known as “Spotlight on the Collection”, History Quest goes out of the museum to literally walk in the footsteps of McLeod County’s historic figures as we travel to legendary sites in the county.  Watch us on cable access channel 7 & 10!
