The History Center would like to thank all of the generous individuals and organizations who supported our Annual Fund during 2016. These donors have helped us to preserve the 60,000+ items in our collection and to provide educational programs to elementary schools throughout the county. We are extremely grateful to these donors for helping us to fulfill our mission to provide a unique community resource that preserves and shares the stories of our past and connects people of all ages to the present and future of Linn County, Iowa. 

If you would like to make a contribution of your own, you may donate online here or call 319-362-1501 to learn about other ways that you can support The History Center.
