Hi Members and Friends:
The mission of the Kirkwood Historical Society is to discover, collect, study and preserve the history of Kirkwood and the surrounding areas. The society promotes educational programs, exhibitions and special events, and provides for the preservation of Mudd’s Grove Museum, the society’s headquarters. The Kirkwood Historical Society runs entirely on volunteer time and talent energy. It offers a great opportunity to preserve the rich heritage and community spirit that is Kirkwood, Missouri. It is a great way to meet and interact with a lot of wonderful people who value both the history of Kirkwood and Kirkwood in general. Here are a few ways you can help the Kirkwood Historical Society carry out its mission:
The Kirkwood Historical Society is located at Mudd’s Grove, 302 W. Argonne Drive, Kirkwood, MO 63122, caddy-corner to St. Peter’s Catholic Church. The house is open on Thursday and Sunday from 1:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. Mudd’s Grove is closed to the public during the month of January. However, the Library is open from 1-4 for research purposes. Great training will be provided.
In addition to volunteering as a docent, you also have the opportunity to help by volunteering for the following once a year events:
