Hello, my name is Bart Hamlett and I was born and raised in Edgewood, Iowa. I have been interested in history, genealogy and old stuff most of my adult life. A group of us have recently got together and have gotten the wheels rolling on getting a museum opened in Edgewood. We invite anyone and everyone who has an interest in history or Edgewood to join us. We have a building and at this time starting to remodel it and are getting the initial startup items taken care of. What I am looking for is any old photos, newspapers, articles, scrapbooks, postcards, memorabilia, store giveaways, pens/pencils, advertising, and just about anything related to Edgewood. Can be anything from the 1850's up to current time, as history is only a day old. I understand that many people do not want to part with their items and I understand that. We will make copies and/or pay for copies of old photos, postcards etc. Please contact me if you have something you think we may be interested in. ( do not think what you have is not worth contacting me, items as small as an old pencil may be something we could use ) Simply email me firstname.lastname@example.org call/text me @ 319-310-7615 or check out the Edgewood, Iowa History and More facebook page. We would love for all of you to join our facebook group as well, we have many old Edgewood photos and stories. We would love to see old family photos of Edgewood residents, photos of stores, homes, parades, fires or anything Edgewood related. Thank you in advance and we look forward to sharing the history and stories of our great town.
