WWI Project Presentation at AHS Museum May 5th, 7 pm

Claire Marks, Associate Historian at the State Historical Society of Missouri, will present an exciting statewide project that tells the stories of 156,000 Missourians on the battlefield, factories and farms from the world’s first global conflict from 1914-1918.  Claire’s presentation will be Monday, May 5, at the Arnold Historical Society Museum, 1723 Jeffco Blvd beginning at 7 p.m.  The public is invited to the free program.

When the State project is completed, the collaborative project will feature a single, digital collection of documents, photographs, artifacts and memorabilia illustrating the effect that WWI had on Missouri and the impact of Missourians’ contribution to the war effort.  A small sample of what will be available can be explored at

As the project develops, a blog on that site will feature regular posts on Missouri’s World War I history, fascinating collections and programs planned throughout the State.  It will also offer families the opportunity to share topics and private collections.

Locally, a second phase of the WWI project will be held at the Museum on Sat. May 17 from noon – 4 p.m.  People are invited to bring in their artifacts from WWI and photos will be taken to document each item.  Old photos from that time frame are also welcome and will be scanned and returned to the family.

The VFW Post 2593 in Arnold donated their WWI artifacts to the Arnold Historical Society about seven years ago when they moved to their new location on Church Road.  The Post, Becker-Meyer-Becker, was named for three local men who lost their lives as part of the Great War: John Adam Becker, son of Adam and Clara (Kessler) Becker and Charley F. Becker, son of Hubert and Anna (Konert) Becker. These two men are buried next to each other in Immaculate Conception cemetery.  Research continues as Post members look for documents to identify the Meyer that died in WWI.

Eagle Scout Team completes new Hillside Garden

Check out the beautiful new landscaped hillside we have at our entryway.  The Eagle Scout team did an awesome job!

And we can’t WAIT for Spring!  Lots of daisies will show color on the top 2 levels. There are about one million black eyed susan seeds scattered wherever the planters are not. So they will all show their color. The lowest tier has pink cone flowers with purple irises and more daisies.

Eagle Scout Project for Curb Appeal

Thanks to Christopher Abele, Jr, the AHS Museum is getting a face lift and some added ‘curb appeal’.  Christopher is working on his Eagle Scout project.  He and several friends were at the museum this weekend working on our hillside to strengthen the hill, create a retaining wall, and make a prettier spot for flowers and bushes.

After Christopher is done with the hard part, we will still want to fill in with bulbs, perennials, and some evergreen bushes.   If you’d like to donate toward the new hillside landscaping project, please make checks payable to the AHS, and indicate ‘Eagle Scout Landscaping Project’ on the memo (and we always love cash, too).

AHS Hillside Fun

Christopher and Team having fun!

We love to see teens and adults enhancing the history and beauty of the museum.  If you have an idea for a project, contact Bernie Wilde to discuss it.  We have so many more ideas for improvements than we have funding or volunteer labor, so we LOVE ideas, donations, and volunteers!  Be a part of our mission to Preserve and Share Arnold’s Long & Rich History through your local museum.
