Press Release

 

(FORSYTH, MO.)    A free tour of the Cedar Creek area by the White River Valley Historical Society’s ‘Historic Sites’ committee will be held on Saturday, June 4.  The driving tour, which begins at 10:00am, will include stops at various schools and cemeteries.

“We will meet at the Kissee Mills Cemetery, next to the Kissee Mills Bible Church, and from there will stop by Johnson and Brown Schools before arriving at the former Cedar Creek School (now the fire department) for lunch,” stated Marilyn France, chair of the committee.  “Each attendee will receive a booklet that will contain photographs and historic information, as well as a map prepared by Curtis Copeland that shows the outlying sites and areas not accessible to us now.  After lunch, we’ll take a look at Liberty and Loafer’s Glory schools, among other buildings.  Participants will need to bring their own sack lunches and chairs.”

The public is invited to attend this free event, and should arrive at the Kissee Mills Cemetery prior to 10:00am, as the group will depart promptly at that time.  For more information, please contact the Society at 417-546-2210 or email info@wrvhs.org.  In the event of inclement weather, the tour will be re-scheduled to a later date.
