Welcome to the Mitchell County Historic Preservation Association’s web site. Our goals include identifying and preserving Mitchell County’s historic structures, sites, and stories. We also provide information and resources to owners of historic properties in Mitchell County, and host events connecting the present to the past.
On Sunday, June 20, 2021 we will host the 10th Summer Solstice Garland Poetry Reading at 2:00 p.m. We will meet in the front lawn of Hamlin Garland’s boyhood home at 3907 Noble Ave, northeast of Osage. We will read poems inspired by prairie sights and sounds while sitting in the front yard of the homestead that inspired the poetry.
This is an outdoor event, so bring a lawn chair or blanket to sit on. Light refreshments will be served.
