This historical society would like to invite you to come for a visit and tour their new museum once the Coronavirus restrictions of social distancing are removed.
"We must do all that we can to ensure a safe and healthy environment for our community, our visitors and our volunteers," President of the society Mike White said. "With this in mind, we have determined that the Clay County Historical Society and the Clay We Were Museum will join other local and state agencies in closing for two weeks and We plan to reopen April 2, 2020. Updates to this schedule will be emailed to members and provided through our FB page. We apologize for any inconvenience."
If you have questions or had planned to visit from out of town please contact White at 606/813-6711.
