LDN -- Top Stories

Bill Donath holds a newspaper called the Charitable Observer that was the monthly paper of the Lincoln School for the Feeble Minded, later known as the Lincoln State School and Colony. It was printed by the Lincoln Herald circa 1856 to the early 1900's. This was one of many old newspapers and paper documents found in a secret room at the former MKS Jewelers building after it closed last fall. In April, Donath was pleased to share the findings with guests during the monthly meeting of the Logan County Genealogical and Historical Society. The papers were given to the LCG&HS by the Shew Family, former owners of MKS.
