MAY 1 – Louisa Frederitzi Cody Birthday Celebration & AHS Museum Re-opening

Relatives and friends of Louisa Frederitzi Cody will gather at the Arnold Historical Museum on Saturday May 1 at 1 pm to hang a banner celebrating Louisa Frederitzi Cody’s birthday on May 27.

Rain date will be Saturday, May 8.

May 1 is also the re-opening day for the AHS Museum.

During May there will be a display of all items collected by Buffalo Bill Cody look-alike, Bob Flamm.

Visitors are encouraged to stop by and see the collection.

Louisa was born in Arnold on May 27, 1844 in a home on Frederitzi Lane which is next to the museum. Her family were founding members of Immaculate Conception Church where she was baptized. Louisa met and married Buffalo Bill Cody on March 6, 1866.

Many of Louisa’s relatives are buried in Historic Richardson Cemetery located ½ mile west of Vogel Road on Richardson Road.

The Arnold Historical Society also maintains the cemetery.

We hope you will come by to join us!

Please remember to wear a mask.

SUCCESS!!! The 2020 Car Show was AMAZING!

With an overcast sky and low humidity, 70 cars came to the Arnold Historical Society show on Saturday, Aug. 8, held at the Arnold VFW Post 2593. The cars were all socially-distances with a space between them and the drivers all wearing masks.

Cars of all ages and models included a 1926 Ford Model T, a ’64 Chevy Corvette, and ’66 Dodge Charger, ’67 Ford Mustang, a 1980 Datsun, a 2015 Mercedes Benz and all makes and models in between. We even a silver ’81 Delorian DMC12.

We had a state rep visit the show: Dan Shaul, as well as two councilmen: E. J. Fleischman and Tim Seidenstricker.

The Car Club trophy went to the Coachmens’ Club.

Participants’ Choice was won by Don Berry with his ’64 Ford Galaxy.

Best of Show went to Chuck O’ Dell with his 1965 Chevy Chevelle.

The weather was awesome, the group had a fantastic time, and we got everyone out before the rains came.

Stay tuned in 2021 for news of next summer’s event!

Check out all the fun photos!
