Membership DUES took affect in January, 2022 so please join or renew now.
MCHS is asking for donations, with the goal of $15,000, to repair the
Pioneer Memorial. The monument was erected in 1949 and is located on what was then U.S. Highway 77 and Cliff Avenue. It remains popular as a stopping site to visit and overlook the city. It is much in need of repairs and reconditioning to bring the historic obelisk back to its original condition. As of April 21, donations are just over $15,000. Repairs began the end of April.

The next stage for the Pioneer Memorial is a security system so please continue to donate to the fund. More details to come.
