The Historical Highlights Review


The Shawnee County Historical Society is committed to preserving the past and making it accessible to those interested in knowing who we are and where we come from. Published annually since 1946, by volunteer researchers and writers who explore a certain topic in time, the Bulletins take us back to our roots, connecting us to our rich past and to those who came before us.
