These folks are just the best. They are knowledgeable and courteous, and they take the time to help however they possibly can. They have a wealth of information in their library and their archives, as well as online resources. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit and am looking forward

We spent two days researching at the new building. Many wonderful resources available, and I’m sure more will be in place once everything is moved. The volunteers are awesome and are so knowledgeable about the area and family lines.

Thank you so much, KelsieMoose! You came to see us while we are in the middle of packing to move to another building. I hope you will visit us there the next time you are in town. It's at 341 West Main, just one long block away from where we are now. We will have more room and better parking, too. Our email and phone will remain the same, as will our mailing address and Web page. I'm glad you enjoyed our facility and our town and county - we kinda like it too.

Full disclosure: I just started as a volunteer at the Historical Society. I really had no idea this wonderful treasure existed until I started researching my family history a few years ago. The HSWCV has a wonderful collection of historical documents AND a staff of volunteers
