[January 04, 2016]   LINCOLN - The newest addition to the Logan County ornament series, sponsored by the Logan County Genealogical & Historical Society, has arrived and is available for purchase.

This year's image is of the Knapp, Chesnut, Becker Library and Museum in Middletown. The sales are cash and carry, no reserved orders.

The two-story brick building that currently houses a history museum and community library was built in 1833 and is the oldest brick structure in Logan County. It was initially home to Middletown's first post office and mercantile and has continued to serve the small community as a business site and center of activity for almost 200 years.

The ornaments are available at the Logan County Genealogical and Historical Society, 114 N. Chicago; (open 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. - Tues., Thur., & Fri., or by appointment); MKS Jewelers, 614 Broadway; or Serendipity Stitches, 129 S. Kickapoo, Lincoln.
