My husband is President of our DeWitt Historical Society. We bot an old drug store on main street in 1989. He spent one winter redoing this building, new wiring, new plumbing, new roof, repair of old walls, new bathroom, etc. We opened the museum Memorial Day in 1991. We are full!
I am the curator and we set up a system of recording the items received and cataloging them. I set up the displays and do research for genealogy. We have newspapers from 1874 which we keep in our garage because they are too dirty to take into the museum. Our historical society published a 365 page book on the occasion of the town's 125 anniversary. We had people submit their family history. I researched the old newspapers and another member went through all of the old minutes of the library, fire dept., village board minutes, etc that she could find. We had a teacher at school scan our photos onto disk. I built that book here on my home PC page by page, importing photos and cut
and paste the written stories. The book had 365 pages--I can't believe I did it.
Tonight our Historical Society met because we have purchased another store building next to our museum and a vacant lot next to it. This building has a common wall with ours and is deserted. We
need it to secure our building but also for the space. So you know we have a big project for THIS winter. Must close, oh yes, will try to go through your pages as I see there is a lot you need yet. Evelyn Reid Jewell worked here in DeWitt for Carl Niemeyer Dry Good Store all of her life, esp after her husband died. Son Marvin is deceased but Dwight and wife Lauraine live in Lincoln across the street from our daughter. His health is not good. Somewhere I have a clipping about Carl and Evelyn when he closed the store. Must close, Thanks for everything, Doris
