TECUMSEH – The Johnson County Historical Society will begin its 2019 season with a special “Monday Night at the Museum,” honoring the Tecumseh Chieftain.
Newspaper Editor Carol Sisco will present facts and anecdotes of 150 years beginning at 7 p.m. on April 8.
Society President Sarah Williamson said the Chieftain was founded two years after statehood and 14 years after Tecumseh.
Williamson: “It is only fitting that the museum joins in the Chieftain’s celebration of its 150th year. We are honored to be a part of such a significant milestone.”
Williamson said the Chieftain has been a part of the community longer than anyone can remember.
Williamson: “The museum has dedicated one of its display windows to reflect a small portion of that history. Not only has the Chieftain supported Johnson and surrounding counties, its readers have supported the Chieftain. What a wonderful success story!”
As always, Monday Night at the Museum is open to the public.
