A Message from the Board of Directors

It takes many volunteers, generous people and city support to keep operating our first class museum. The most rewarding aspect of volunteering is hearing the many positive comments from visitors who are impressed with the "big city museum" in Seymour. We were pleased to add several new exhibits this year and will continue to utilize the latest technology to help tell our story.
In addition to preserving area history and making it available to the public the Seymour Community Historical Society strives to continue to build our oral history and pictorial archive. In this issue of the Seymour History Bulletin you will enjoy a brief early history of the canning factory, a colorful description of a one room school, a childhood adventure, and an interview with long time Seymour residents Clayton and Audrey Ebert.
The purpose of our newsletter is to keep our members informed of exhibits, activities and progress at the museum and the vital role the historical society fills in the community. Our members are our most valuable asset. We cannot play a viable role without your support. Please use the form at the end of this publication to make a donation to the society this holiday season.
