2019 Annual Meeting Special Event:
One-Room Schools Conversation
On Monday, March 18, 2019, at 7:00 p.m. Byron Historical Society will open the floor to members and guests who have personal memories of one-room schools. As fewer Americans hold these amazing experiences, our opportunity to capture first-person recollections will not last forever. Now is the time. Won’t you plan to be with us?
Happy New Year! BHS Board members Maureen Betz and Marlin Towne (right) were greeted at the Town of Byron Holiday Party in January by Town Chair Bob Simon.
Get Involved! BHS has lots of fun activities for all our friends and members.
- Byron Historical Community Exhibit – Our current exhibit is available for public viewing until Memorial Day, 2019 (N3097 Highway 175, Byron WI 53006). We are open from 9:00-noon every Saturday before the monthly meetings. Our next Saturday opening will be March 16. We are available at other times by appointment. Please email us ([email protected]) or call 920 922 5351 or 920 960 4591 to schedule.
- Oral history project – The African proverb reminds us that when someone dies, a library has burned because his/her story is lost. We want to preserve the stories of our people through interviews. Please consider volunteering to meet with a member of our community to hear and record his/her stories. BHS will provide guidelines and a tape recorder. Contact us for more details.
