The Kingdom of Callaway Historical Society continues to be the repository to archive the history of Callaway County. The cost of utilities and supplies to provide these services continually increase. Membership dues provide most of the funding for the Society and without your continued support, we could not continue to be open four days per week and free to the public. We want you to know how much your continued support of the Historical Society is appreciated.
