Join Us in Celebrating 175 Years of Scott County History!

2012 will mark the 175th Anniversary of Scott County Iowa. Have your classroom be part of the celebration by participating in the Putnam Museum’s Scott County Winter Count Project! This free project will help your students understand the importance of the Winter Count to Native Americans in our area as well as guide them in researching one 10-year time span of Scott County History. Best of all, your class can contribute a piece to the Scott County Winter Count which will be displayed at the Putnam Museum and throughout Scott County! Hurry – there are still some kits left. Contact us and we’ll mail one directly to your classroom.
