The first meeting of a coalition of Osage County historical societies and other interested people was held Wednesday Nov. 10, 2021, at the Lyndon Community Center. The group was created to begin a collaborative union among groups in Osage County interested in preserving the history of our county. Representatives from Osage County Historical Society, Bailey House at Lyndon, Overbrook Historical Society, Overbrook Library, Arvonia Preservation Society, and Osage City were in attendance.

The bringing together of these entities interested in the history of the county is anticipated to foster the exchange ideas, information, and resources. Topics discussed at the meeting were various avenues of support, including shared promotion of events, volunteerism, joint events, and traveling community displays. Also discussed were various avenues of funding and support. The group plans to meet regularly and a February date is being considered.
