Voices of the Past, a program of the Holt County Missouri Historical Society and Holt County Bicentennial Committee, will bring Holt County pioneers and citizens to life through actor portrayals and highlight the cemeteries in which they are buried. The program, open to the public, will be held Sunday, October 13, 2019, at 2:00 pm at the historic State Theater in Mound City, Missouri. There is no charge, but donations will be gratefully accepted.
Forest City, in Holt County, has a rich history. From the time it was platted in 1857, through its days as a major port on the Missouri River and industrial years supporting a brewery and cannery, to its evolvement into a quiet farming community, Forest City has remained a vital part of Holt County history. On Sunday, June 9, the Holt County Historical Society will provide a walking tour of Forest City’s historic buildings, including St. Patrick’s Church and City Hall, as well as a trip to its still-working drug store.
