Forgotten Communities at Polk History Museum
August 16, 2022 @ 2:00 pm
At the August 16th meeting we will learn where these communities were located, how they got their name and what became of them. Many were rural post offices and during the presentation select stories will be shared about these long lost places. The program will begin at 2pm inside the Polk County Museum located at 60 Walker Street in Columbus.
Different individuals will be sharing information about these forgotten communities. Local historian Phyllis Martin will give the history of Collinsville, Rebbeca, and Pat McCool will discuss many of the Polk County lost communities. We also hope that the audience will contribute. Please bring your old pictures or memorabilia of these lost towns
There is no cost to attend the monthly Historical Association programs. The public is encouraged to attend.
