Support The Society

In 1984 a group of forward-thinking individuals publicly recognized the importance of history by founding The Clay County Genealogical & Historical Society with the express purpose of preserving and promoting the legacy of our county and region. Since then the volunteers, members, and supporters of the historical society have worked tirelessly to continue this
