    All events are held in the G. C. Rann Auditorium on the second floor of the museum. The late G. C. Rann and his wife Maurine and the citizens of Decatur began restoration of the auditorium, and the completion of the restoration process has the auditorium a showplace.  We have a full schedule of events planned for the rest of the year.

A ramp, steps that are easy to use for walkers and an elevator are available to make the museum accessible to the physically challenged. 





Well, folks, It looks like we better cancel today's Wise County Historical Society, Inc. meeting. I went by the museum building last evening to check on things and all the steps into the building were covered at that time with sleet and ice and it looks like we may have another round of some ice headed our direction. I got hopeful last evening when the temperature got above freezing for a little while, but overnight I fear that ice probably refroze on all the walkways and it is hard to tell what this morning may bring our way.

I will keep you all informed if it looks like we can reschedule the meeting on a future date. Thanks to all the folks who had RSVP's committing to attend.
