Rebecca Stowers resigned as president of the Douglas Historical Society at the annual meeting on March 1St. She had served in that office for four years. In 2007 when she became president, the volunteer pool had dried up and the society was on the verge of collapse. She said she couldn’t let that happen.
The museum has the core of an expanding resource library on Douglas history and its surrounding area, which includes books, photos, and eventually transcribed oral histories. The museum is open two days a week, Wednesday 10-4 and Saturday 12-4.
Rebecca has been a member of the Douglas Historical Society for eleven years.
