MCHS Updates

July 3:

We may still be having issues with our website. While everything should be back to normal we are still checking for bugs and errors. If you notice any bugs and errors yourselves please do inform us. It may not be fixed immediately but it will be addressed.


We'll be bringing more updates about what we've been up to this late spring/early summer season (Hint: it's a lot) but we do want to let you all know that the museum WILL be open this Friday, July 3rd.

Also, we wish to mourn the passing of Ray "Bus" Kesler, Jr. and Steve Pierce. Bus was a well-loved utility person/handyman that worked at the museum for over a decade and was a joy to work with and a font of local history knowledge. Steve Pierce was also a very large supporter of local history including the MCHS. We will greatly miss both of these fine gentlemen.
