Also of Note:
We hope to erect a historical marker four miles west of Cairo to honor the Borglum family who lived there in the late1800′s. Sculptors Solon and Gutzon Borglum became world famous in their day. Gutzon is of Mt. Rushmore fame.
A book is pending with Ohio University Press about the Balcom-Green collection of photographs in the museum’s possession. The museum is seeking a corporate grant to help get the book published.
