The Historical Society is exclusively funded through the Sower Trust, membership dues, and private donations. We receive no financial support from any municipal, county, or state source.

Our organization has been enriching the lives of Marshall County residents and visitors in countless ways since 1908. Examples of our benefits are:

  • Preserving and protecting artifacts for future generations.
  • Our wonderful Museum, open 30 hours per week and by appointment. Visitors are given tours and provided assistance with historical and genealogical research. All Marshalltown 3rd grade students tour the Museum.
  • Central Iowa Genealogical Society’s library is housed in the Museum, and assists guests with research.
  • We maintain the Glick-Sower Victorian house museum. All Marshalltown 3rd grade students tour the house. 
  • We maintain the 1913 Taylor #4 Country School which provides free, full-day reenactments for all Marshall County 4th grade children.
  • We oversee the Edel Blacksmith Shop in Haverhill.
  • We give free monthly programs on historical topics at our Museum.
  • We provide speakers for other community organization events.
  • The Museum is available to the public for private meetings and catered events. 

Our Historical Society is in its 108th year of operation. Please help us continue to keep history alive in Marshall County. We need your ongoing support in order to sustain this very important community-dedicated organization. We would be very grateful for your tax-deductible gift.
