Historical Society meeting to host Kleckner

Sunday, September 25, 2011

The Clay County Historical Society will meet at 7 p.m., Monday, Oct. 3, in the lower level of the Clay County Museum.

The guest speaker for the meeting will be Tommy Kleckner, a representative from the Indiana Landmarks Western Regional Office, Terre Haute.

Kleckner's program will focus on Indiana's 10 most endangered landmarks that are in jeopardy of either being lost by demolition, wear and tear or weather.

Kleckner will also present an update on the recently renovated state headquarters in Indianapolis in the Central Avenue Methodist Church. A grand opening for the headquarters will take place in April.

The Historical Society is also planning an Open House Sunday, Oct. 9, from 1-4 p.m. There will be a special exhibit on loan from the Indiana Historical Society, refreshments and door prizes.

The society will also continue the project of listing Clay County World War II soldiers on the kiosk at the War Memorial in Indianapolis.

The public is invited to both events.

The museum is open Monday through Friday, from 1-4 p.m., and Saturdays, from 1:30-3:30 p.m.

Special tours can be arranged by calling the museum during normal business hours.
