Heritage group meets in new Genealogy building

The Adair Heritage Association (AHA) held its June meeting in the new Genealogy building beside the Library. Director Lee Ann Jessee declared the new building fully completed and open to the public. She said, "Now we want everyone to use and enjoy it."

The first Genealogy meeting will be held in the new building August 2, 2021 at 5pmCT.

The Voices audio project in the works at the historic Rosenwald School is moving forward.



Samuel Hughes and his sister Justina Hughes Sanders, students of the Rosenwald School, recently spoke about their experiences there and were recorded by Linda Waggener. Phil Hanna is taking the recordings to the next step with a goal for future visitors to be able to hear the voices on cell phones as they walk through the one room school. Hanna is a member of the Genealogy Department, AHA and the Adair Arts Council where he shared the goals of the Voices program. He said Anne and Alan Bird, new owners of the Highland Studio in Sparksville, have the expertise to help make the audio feature happen.

Mike Watson said three cemeteries have been adopted in the Adopt a Grave program. Since it started, there have been cemeteries identified that had not been known.

No response has come from Fiscal Court about the state of the Historic Adair County Courthouse since the accident in February which damaged the Burkesville Street side of the building.
