Moody County's history is a patchwork of stories from individual lives. Personal letters, diaries, family trees, scrapbooks, oral histories and photographs all tell first-hand stories of lives we can only imagine. Maps, ledgers, business correspondence, directories, newspapers, and event programs reveal threads within and throughout the community. This research facility provides a safe home and easy access to the materials that literally document Moody’s County’s heritage.

We welcome donations for our collections

If you have family treasures tucked away in an attic, trunk, hat box or pasteboard box under the bed, please consider adding them to this body of knowledge. Donate your documents and artifacts to the historical society for safekeeping. Tell us your stories. It’s the best way to share them with future generations.

The Director and volunteers provide assistance. We invite you to undertake your own assisted research or we will be happy to do it for you.

The Research Center is a reference only facility; NO materials leave the building.
