, 2015 is upon us and the historical society is planning for another great year. 2014 was a successful year because of the support we receive from you, our
sponsors and members. Due to your generous donations and volunteer hours, the Jennings County Historical Society was able to host a very successful
Sassafras Tea Festival, Home and Garden Tour and Hector's Haunted Happenings. We were also able to provide tours to hundreds of elementary
school children throughout the year. These donations also allow the museum to stay open year round for three days a week for local patrons and out of town
visitors to enjoy. Without your support,much history preservation of our community would be lost.
The Next Monthly Meeting
will be held at the Jennings County Historical Society on February 26th, 2015 at 12pm. Please plan to attend and hear what
is coming up for the museum and to contribute your ideas!

This year's guest speaker will be Bob Malcomb. Mr. Malcomb will be in costume as Prince Madoc, the leader of a band of sailors
that settled in the local area in 1170 AD. Legend has it that some Welsh Vikings settled in the area along the Ohio River between Louisville and Madison,
possibly even in Deputy, Indiana. Mr. Malcomb will tell their story.
