• Most of the town’s centennial books in the county.

• Farm directories from several years and the surrounding counties.

• A few senior yearbooks.

• Town history

• Information on any church or cemetery in the county.

• Collections of old maps, military information, newspaper clippings of weddings, anniversaries, historical birthdays and family reunions.
