I love learning local history and enjoy sharing what I discover. I am a volunteer and board member of the Plymouth County Historical Museum in Le Mars, Iowa. Every month I publish a newsletter for my hometown of Brunsville, Iowa, called "The Brunsville Blitz." It’s no surprise that my favorite part is covering the town’s history and publishing old photos. Writing a blog on local history for the Sioux City Journal is my way of contributing to the success of their innovative site.
