In this episode, Sean Thomas meets Christy Deutmeyer of the Dyersville Area Historical Society.

You’ll learn how the town of Dyersville began and some of the influential business men of the area. We discussed the Field of Dreams movie set; which is now a park in Dyersville.

We learn about the Dyer-Botsford Museum and plans for further maintenance in spring 2022. Donations are needed for this.

We discussed how Covid has affected both the Society and the Community.

Christy discussed a curriculum developed in 2019 to allow school aged children to interact with the Society and learn about how life has changed from the last century to this one. She is planning to implement this as soon as Covid dissipates.

The Society is contemplating publication of a new book to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Dyersville area.

An objective Christy has established to be accomplished this winter season is to redesign and implement a new Society Web Site.

One thing that comes shining through in the program is just how passionate Christy and her organization are to help members and visitors.

If you’re a listener in the Dyersville Area OR if you’re a listener researching family history in the Dyersville Iowa area and you’re not already a member, please consider joining and supporting the society!

Right now, volunteers, donations to maintain the Dyers-Botsford Museum, and visitors are needed. The Dyersville Area Historical Society’s website URL is dyersvillehistory.com

I can’t wait for the changes to the website.!

The Dyersville Area Historical Society is truly a value-add to the community and definitely one of our nation’s Preservation Oaks!
