A reception and display of historical documents dating back to the formation of the county are on display at the Historical Society's Museum in Vernon immediately following the program at the Courthouse. Everyone is welcome.

Each month we will highlight one of our townships and their will be a section of the local Newspaper - North Vernon Plain Dealer & Sun - which will have stories from that township.
February is Spencer Township. Rodger Rudick of the Hayden Historical Museum which is in Spencer Township will be supplying information for that group of articles. We will be putting Spencer Township items from the Jenning County Public Library in our Local History & Genealogy Room display, and The Jenning County Historical Historical Society will also be having a display of Spencer Township History.
