The American Revolutionary War in the West

Visit the Heritage Museum at 1630 Heritage Landing St. Peters, MO 63303 to view the new exhibit, "The American Revolutionary War in the West," which has never been on display before. The exhibit features rare artifacts, original documents, uniforms, flags and interactive components that explore life in the Mississippi River Valley region during the American Revolutionary War and western contributions to the war. This exhibit gets its name from a new book by St. Louisan Stephen L. Kling Jr. His book and the exhibit focus on the war in the west, which has been largely ignored until recently. Other exhibits throughout the museum delve into the history of St. Charles County during the Colonial era and the War of 1812. Click HERE for more information.


MESSAGE FROM THE SCCHS PRESIDENT

APRIL 2022
 
Dear Members, Friends and Supporters of the St. Charles County Historical Society:
 
We held our Annual General Membership Meeting on Saturday, April 23.  At that time, we held our yearly elections and returning to the Board were:
Dr. James Bryant
Dr. Robert Sandford
Richard Tieman
Newly elected board members were:
Carol Sylph
Mike Thomson
I hope you have the opportunity to meet all members of the board, including our new members, at upcoming events.  We continue to thank all of our board members for their past, present and future service to the Society.  As two new members came on the board, two departed.  The Society thanks Jack Sandridge and Keith Stiern for their service to the society.  They will not be on the board this year, but they will still serve the Society, which is greatly appreciated. Jack and Keith have both worked a lot for the betterment of the Society and this is appreciated.
 
Thanks.
 
Joan  Koechig
President
