Whether it’s the prehistoric residents of the Pottawattamie County or the history of the Razzle Dazzle Go-go club on Broadway, odds are there are aspects of local history that interest you and you’d like to learn more about. Here’s a motivator to stop thinking about it and start learning!
The Historical Society needs volunteers to research local history. The information may find its way into an article in our Member Journal, as a post on our Council Bluffs Revealed Facebook page, or perhaps use in one of our podcasts or videos.
Remember, history isn’t boring. Be it railroads or roller rinks, it has all contributed to making our town what it is today. If you are interested in the topic, we guarantee others are as well. Pick the topic you are passionate about and dive in. We can give you some tips on the best places to find information. If you like writing, feel free to put your findings into an article. If that’s not your thing just send us what facts you discover and we can have a professional writer weave it into a story. Warning: This can be addictive. Some of our members started out this way with one topic and now are most knowledgeable people about local history alive!
