Have you ever heard of "Glue Chip Glass?" Come and see the beautiful effects our speaker, John Parker, Sr. can create on glass with this process. Maybe you can even learn to do it yourself. This will be our last meeting of 2019. Our programs will resume again on the 4th Tuesday of March. The museum and research library will remain open on Thursdays 9-4 and Saturdays 9-12, weather permitting.

August 2019 - Prairie Meadows recently awarded Warren County Historical Society Museum a Community Betterment Grant totaling $4,800. The grant has helped fund the second half of the LED lighting project on the lower floor of the museum. Prairie Meadows is a nonprofit business dedicated to lessening the burden of government by promoting economic development, jobs, agriculture, and tourism in the state of Iowa.

The project was completed at the end of August and has made a significant improvement to the usability and safety of the lower level area. We are excited about this improvement and hope you will stop in during Log Cabin Days to enjoy the well-lit displays.
