"Preserving, Honoring, & Celebrating"

Next Meeting:  April 13, 2023, at 6:00 p.m. at the Ralls County Courthouse. RCHS is hoping to have someone available to provide a tour of the courthouse at the beginning of our meeting.  It should be noted that the courthouse is handicapped accessible.  We are very fortunate to have such a beautiful, well-maintained county courthouse.  Please mark your calendar now and plan to attend this meeting.  We need the entire community’s support to sustain the work of the Ralls County Historical Society. 

Lasagna Supper 2023 a Success

Thanks to the support of the entire county, the Ralls County Historical Society’s lasagna supper fundraiser was a success.  This was an opportunity for those in attendance to renew or begin their membership to the Historical Society. 

After supper, Ron Leake, president of the Historical Society, shared an overview of projects that the Historical Society is currently working on. After thanking the many volunteers and donors that worked to make the event a success, Ron handed the program over to John Wallace to begin the auction. 

These amazing ladies were some of the individuals that baked the donated food and served it at the 2023 Lasagna Supper.

Thank you to the following individuals for their contributions to the auction:

The feature item of the evening was a painting of the Ralls County Courthouse.  The painting will be on display at the museum, and the owners’ names will be shown alongside the painting. Below is the list of this year’s proud co-owners of the painting.

If you want to be involved with the Historical Society, please send an email (rwleake@aol.com) or get in touch with Ron Leake (573-248-6147), Linda Hodges, Sharon Lake, Carolyn Trower, or Delores Woodhurst.  We are hoping that volunteers will continue to spend time organizing the museum and keeping it in good condition. We are always in need of volunteers to be at the museum during the summer hours when it is open.  Also, it’s not too late to become a member of the Ralls County Historical Society. Individual, family, and business memberships are available. A membership form is available on our website (rallscohistoricalsociety.com).
