    All day

    “What Were You?” this Bicentennial Exhibit asks with special exhibits throughout the Museum.  What were you driving? What were you eating? What were you wearing? What were you listening to? Where were you living? What did your community look like in 1821, 1921, and 2021? The Grand River Historical Society Museum will show through exhibits how culture, society, has changed over time from the founding of the State of Missouri in 1821 to the present.

    Missouri Mondays: Harry S. Truman’s Connections Across Missouri

    All day
    February 1, 2021-January 28, 2022

    Missouri Mondays: Harry S. Truman’s Connections Across Missouri is a social media campaign that will focus each week on a different Missouri town and its connection to Harry S. Truman. The Truman Library will use photos, documents, and motion picture footage to illustrate the connections that Truman made across Missouri that helped him win election to the Senate in 1934 and 1940, and made him a viable vice-presidential and presidential candidate in 1944 and 1948. This campaign will promote understanding of different Missouri communities, and illustrate the different ways that Missouri’s only President made an impact throughout the state, and not just his home region. Follow the Harry S. Truman Presidential Library and Museum on these social medial platforms:
