Society Saturday: Tri-County Historical Society

    It's time to change towns again! This time we're headed to Cascade, Iowa and checking out the Tri-County Historical Society. While the Tri-County Historical Society apparently doesn't have a research library, they do have some great articles, photos, and artifacts describing life in town. Online, you can view historic photos of the area. You can also read articles on the town's military road, its connection with Ringling Brothers and more. Off-line, the Historical Society boasts a museum with exhibits on the railroad, baseball star Red Farber, and local military service. A visit may not teach you much about your family, but it will teach you a lot about where they lived!
