Memorial to Historical Museum
Elaine Dannenberg Raasch enthusiastically shared her knowledge of the history of Odebolt during her latter years. She followed the development of the Odebolt Historical Museum and admired its volunteers in their accomplishments in establishing and maintaining the museum. In keeping with her wishes to preserve the heritage and artifacts of the community, her nephew John Brooks Noyd funded the installation and ongoing maintenance of an alarm system to protect and to minimize the loss of the community keepsakes from fire, burglary and vandalism. This was done in admiration of his Aunt Elaine's devotion to the Odebolt community and its history. Thank you, John!
