Next Meeting

October Meeting

The Historical Society has been invited to Matt School House for a Community Needs Assessment concerning the future use of the historic school house.

The meeting will be conducted on Tuesday, October 1 at 5:30 pm and Thursday, October 3 at 5:30 pm. We will forgo our regular monthly meeting so that our members can attend these meeting and give your input into how the school can best benefit the Matt Community. This gives you the opportunity to choose which night is most convenient for you.

The school is located at 5710 Namon Wallace Road

Nov. 5 – 7:00 pm

The Sherrill House

The Sherrill House Native American and Pioneer Heritage Center located on Old Federal Rd will house Native American and Pioneer artifacts and relics as well as providing demonstrations of varying arts and skills that helped both groups survive during trying times.

Genealogical research will be available also.

We are raising the funds to complete the restoration so that it may be open to the public as soon as possible for everyone to enjoy.
