If you’ve been up town in the past 6 months, you may have noticed the increase in activity around the Madrid Historical Museum. Since purchasing the fourth of the series of four buildings on 2nd Street, many people have been at work repairing and upgrading both the interior and exterior of the building. The most visible was probably the replacement of the shared roof on the third and fourth buildings to the west and the tuck pointing of the 4th building.
Eventually it is hoped that area West of the buildings can contain a small green space for the community to enjoy.
At this point, our cash reserves have been depleted and we need your help to continue to improve the Museum and our downtown. Donations of any amount will be appreciated and will help make a difference! The Museum is a 501(c)3 organization which means that your gift is eligible for a tax deduction.
Send your check today to Madrid Historical Society, Post Office Box 105, Madrid, IA 50156.
If you are interested in being a volunteer, contact any board member. There’s always plenty to do and we would love to have you work with us to maintain and improve our community’s museum!
The museum has a list of names of individuals in our Genealogy File.
Some names may have a complete book or as little as a picture or small amount of information.
You will need to visit our museum to look at the actual information. We are located at 109 W Second Street, Madrid, IA. Our phone number is 515-795-3249. We are open every Saturday from 10 am to noon or we can arrange to be open at a time that is more convenient for you.
