See the DES MOINES HISTORICAL SOCIETY page - www.neighborhoodlink.com/org/dmhs for information about the DMHS, and the DMHS is on Facebook.
The next DMHS meeting is Thursday, October 27, 2011 from 6 - 7:45 p.m. at the Iowa Genealogical Society, 624 E. Grand. The program is: Notable of Des Moines, about famous people who have lived in DM. This is not the well-known stories, you will be surprised!

The DES MOINES HISTORICAL SOCIETY is varying meeting places, dates and times right now so as many as possible may attend and locations with no, or low cost are difficult to find.
