AMBOY – North Clark Historical Museum will present an exhibit featuring the Territorial Days celebrations over the years. The first Territorial Days took place in 1961 and were organized to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Amboy post office. It was supposed to be a one-time event, but it was so well received that it has been held every year since then, with the exception of 2020.
There will also be a Summer Book Blowout planned with lots of used books for sale in the museum’s basement.
Quilt Raffle tickets will also be available for “Prairie Sampler”, a quilt made by the Chelatchie Quilters. This is the annual fundraiser for the benefit of the museum.
The museum will be open Saturday July 10 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday July 24 from noon to 4 p.m. The address is 21416 NE 399th St., Amboy. The museum is wheelchair accessible and has air conditioning. Free entry. Donations are welcome.
Plan a visit to North Clark County and view Territorial Days over the years.
