PROJECTS

Documenting Old Barns: The society is in the process of taking pictures of all the remaining barns in the township. There are 200 known barns that are or were standing.

The society is searching for pictures of the barns that are no longer around. Not only are pictures being taken but construction information, age, owners and other pertinent information is being obtained. The information will be available for any interested person to view. Many of the township’s barns are over 100 years old.

Veterans: The township has seen many of its residents participate in the military. They are documenting names, branch of service, where served, did they do any fighting, and many other things.

There have been 18 of the township men who gave the ultimate sacrifice of their lives for their country. The township lost 1 in the Civil War, 1 in World War I, 15 in World War II and 1 in Vietnam. Over 600 names of men and women have been found so far. At the November meeting the names of newly found names of veterans are read.

An area dedicated to the veterans holds special meaning in the societies room. Information is available to any interested person.
