Wondering what to give that person who is hard to buy for or that seems to have everything? Well, the Kosciusko County Historical Society has the perfect gift for that hard-to-buy-for person. Four times a year, we publish a fantastic historical magazine called The Thaddeus.
Each issue contains fascinating stories of people, places and things from our county’s past. Interviews with locals add flavor to the information presented in the articles. Recent issues contained stories of Camp Logan located at Dewart Lake, information on how streets in the county were named, an interview with a man who was a tank gunner in World War Two, a history of our elections and a shoot-out at Etna Green.
Old photos are also featured in The Thaddeus. The latest issues contained photos of kids from East Ward School in 1890, The Palestine Mill in 1939, Warsaw football team of 1942, 1929 fair held on the streets of Warsaw, Lucky Lassies 4-H club of 1954, and workers for McClintic, Colwell and Gordy, a Syracuse company that built roads.
With your yearly membership of $25 you or your loved one will receive four issues of The Thaddeus. Our only expectation by joining us is that you enjoy reading about county happenings from by-gone days. Your membership dollars help us continue to preserve our county history and volunteers are welcome to help in the effort.
