Tesson Ferry branch of the St. Louis County Library in the display case inside the entrance
Display by SCHS member Donna Wagner. She can gave a preview of her collection at the October general meeting. But for sure she is scheduled to have her items on view in the Tesson Ferry Library display case. That will be for the whole month of November. As you visit the library, be sure sure to “check out” some of their collection of local history items, some of which are usually on display on a rack near the check out counter. Be sure to stop to say hello to library manager and SCHS member, Anne Arthur, who spoke to us about library services at the April general meeting. Thank you, Anne!

Missouri Civil War Museum
This Meet-at-the-Site Tour is Wednesday, January 29, at 10 a.m. at the recently opened Missouri Civil War Museum, located in the old 1905 Officer’s Post Exchange Building, 222 Worth Road in historic Jefferson Barracks. The three-story building that had sat in disrepair for decades was completely restored to a beautiful structure for the “preservation and study of Missouri and its involvement in the American Civil War.” Custom-made display cases house numerous artifacts — muskets, uniforms, medical equipment. In the center of the main room a cannon, supply wagon and a life-like horse are part of a military scene. Admission: adult $7; senior (age 65 and over) $6.
