Historical Society Plans Tribute To the Tecumseh Chieftain

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.
