WW I Anniversary

The 100th anniversary of the United States’ entry into WW I will be commemorated in 2017.  The Belmond Historical Society would like to honor the men and women who served their country from the Belmond Area.  We would ask your help in finding photos and service history information of anyone you know of who served.  The information & photos may be dropped off at the museum or emailed to BelmondHistory@gmail.com.  If you would like your photo and information returned to you, please let us know and we will be happy to do so.

A Sad Farewell

We at the Belmond Historical Society are deeply saddened by the loss of a key member of our organization.  On Monday, December 26 Jim Pals passed away after a brief struggle with cancer.  Jim is fondly remembered by our members for his thorough and meticulous research into the history of schools and education in Belmond and the surrounding communities.  His clever wit and humor will be missed by those of us who worked with him every week here in the Museum workroom.
