Clinton County History Center to kick off 2024 season with open house, annual meeting


WILMINGTON — The Clinton County History Center is excited to invite community members and the public to celebrate its season opening with an open house event, scheduled for Saturday, March 23, from 12-2:30 p.m., at its location on 149 E. Locust St.

This special event precedes the Society’s Annual Meeting, which will commence at 2:30 p.m., marking a significant milestone as the Center reflects on its remarkable 75th year dedicated to preserving local history and genealogy.

Attendees will have the opportunity to partake in light hors d’oeuvres while enjoying free tours of the museum’s latest temporary exhibit, which showcases the vibrant history of sports in Clinton County. Improvements to the visitor experience including new lighting, QR codes, and artifacts will also be on display.

“The open house and annual meeting serve not only as a platform to review the Center’s achievements and financial highlights from the past year, but also as a moment to recognize the efforts and contributions of its members, including a special moment to bid farewell to outgoing president, Suzanne Madison,” said History Center Director Shelby Boatman.

The annual meeting promises to be an enlightening session, according to Boatman, offering insights into the Center’s accomplishments throughout 2023 and its plans for the future. It will also provide a chance for attendees to meet the Society’s current Board of Trustees.

“The Clinton County History Center is proud of its legacy and eager to share its journey and future aspirations with the community,” said Boatman. “Everyone is encouraged to join in commemorating this significant occasion, as the Center continues to champion the preservation of local heritage and history.”
