Historical Society Meeting Is Every Second Thursday of the Month

at 7pm in the Livestock Exchange Building.

Everyone is Welcome!


  

   

The April Meeting is on the 13th!

Our special guest is photographer Carolyn Brown.

She will share with us her experience while photographing the ruins of the Swift meat packing plant and the making of the book, The Painted Tombs of Swift.

In the summer of 2016 the Swift plant was demolished but now before Ms. Brown was able to document the buildings with photographs.

 

"In the spring of 2016 I was hired to record the Swift Meat Packing campus for preservation records. In a career spanning four decades nothing could have prepared me for the wonderment that I would find at the site. It was utterly transformed from its original purpose." Ms. Brown said of her experience.

The meeting will be held at 7pm in the Livestock Exchange building.
