History preservation video project
One of the long-term goals of the Society has
been to preserve the County's history through multimedia, specifically
videotapes. The current leadership has renewed this project approved by
previous boards and, today, Society members and leaders are actively
moving forward with the project. Several lifetime citizens in McDonald County have been contacted
and are recording historical memories and the tapes for this project are
now in production.
Any persons who are interested in preserving
their memories of McDonald County or who know lifetime residents of the
County whose contributions would be invaluable to the Society are invited
and encouraged to contact The Society.
Anyone interested in participating in this important project is also
invited to contact the Society.
The Heritage and History of McDonald
The McDonald County Historical Society will begin publishing a quarterly journal,
The Heritage and History of McDonald County. The
first issue will be available soon to members.
The Society has founded the McDonald County
Historical Museum in Pineville, displaying historical contributions and
collections depicting the County's rich history. The first floor of the
museum will officially open in August but activities are planned
throughout the summer.
