    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.

Dear Singing Friends;
Just a reminder that our monthly Opry Singing is Coming up this coming Monday night (April 24th) at 6:30 p.m.  It seems like it has not been long since the last singing since there is nearly a week left of April after the last Monday this month.  As always, we will meet ing the 2nd floor G. C. Rann Auditorium of the Wise County Heritage Museum at 1602 S. Trinity St., in Decatur.

Hope to see you and all of your singing friends on Monday night.

April 27th, 2017

This month on, April 27th , 2017, at noon, we will  have a regular meeting at the Wise County Heritage Museum of the Wise County Historical Society, Inc.. 

  Our annual Spring Archeology Tour month is postponed due to Mr. Marquis is to have knee surgery on the 17th of April.  We will not have a program as our regular Society  meeting will be followed at 1 p.m. by a regular quarterly meeting of the Wise County Historical Commission.  All are welcome to attend.

Dear Fellow Board Members:

Hope this finds you all doing well.  I have called a quarterly Wise County Historical Commission  board meeting for Thursday, April 27th, at 1 PM-only about a month late.  I am combining this with the monthly Wise County Historical Society, Inc. meeting at noon that day as we have so many overlaps on these boards and I hope to save having two meeting dates. We have several things to discuss as our work continues to move forward.  Hope this meeting date will work for the most of you.  We will have lunch available for you there, so please come and bring as many interested folks as you can.

Please email me back a response if you can attend this meeting.


Kerry Clower, Chairman

Wise County Historical Commission
