Coalition meets to consider Osage County’s historical resources

The quarterly meeting of the Osage County Historical Coalition was held Feb. 23, 2022, at the Carbondale Library. This coalition is a group of historical societies and other entities interested in creating public awareness and preserving the history of our county.

The meeting began with considering the benefits of what Freedom’s Frontier can do for historical tourism in our county.

Next, Lynsay Flory, programming director for the Osage County Historical Society, told the group how they could access educational programming through OCHS for use in events.

Upcoming events in the county such as the Scranton and Carbondale sesquicentennial celebrations, as well as St. David’s Day events for Arvonia were discussed.

The next coalition meeting will be hosted by the Burlingame Schuyler Museum at 6 p.m. June 14. Individuals involved with historic preservation in Osage County are welcome to attend.
