Received the latest newsletter of the Alexandria-Monroe Twp. Historical Society, and there is a call out for volunteers to reach their goal of opening the museum on Saturdays. Currently, the museum is only open on Thursdays from 1-4 p.m. or by appointment, and Saturday hours would allow more people to visit. Contact President Larry Maple at 724-3508 if you are interested. I've already let him know that I would be willing to help.
One item of interest mentioned in the newsletter was that the Anderson Herald will be publishing stories in March regarding the murder of Police Chief Ellis and Patrolman Virgil Kirkman. These murders occurred March 4, 1911.
If you haven't already visited, I would highly recommend you take the time to do so. The society has quite a collection of memorabilia and photographs relating to the history of the town of Alexandria and Monroe Township.
The society is located at 313 North Harrison Street, Alexandria, Indiana.
