Welcome to the Gasconade County Historical Society (GCHS) Website. This site is designed to help us better communicate with you, our valued visitor, and to help you better understand: who we are…why we exist…what our interests are…where our activities are centered…when they are scheduled to occur…and what items/information we have available for your exploration and possible purchase. Our society was officially chartered almost 40 years ago to bring together people interested in history and especially those people interested in the history of Gasconade County located in this beautiful state of Missouri. This web site is precisely focused on achieving this stated purpose.
