Celebration of History

Celebration of History is an event designed for the diverse members of the JCHS. Think of it as our State of the Union Address. If you don’t go to anything else, go to this. There’s always good food and a good time had by all.

Mr. Paul Juhl is our speaker this year. He’ll present his research on Frank Lloyd Wright, the famous architect, and discuss his new book The Iowa Angle: Frank Lloyd Wright.

The Celebration of History will be held at the Johnson County Historical Society Museum. It will be the last time this event and the Irving Weber Award will be presented in our current building before the move to the Xtream Arena!

Tentative Schedule:

12 PM — Silent Auction

12:15 — Catered Lunch

1 PM — Presentation of Irving Weber Award

1:15 — Presentation by Paul Juhl

2 PM — Arena Walkthrough

 

Registration is requested. Please fill out the form below or call the JCHS offices at (319) 351-5738.

Aisle of Lights (JCHS Activities)

The Coralville Aisle of Lights is an annual winter event perfectly suited to the dreary weather. The brightly lit luminarias around the city give a warmth and friendliness in the cold. The JCHS will have crafts, baked goods, and hot cider for you and your family!

This event is free and open to the public.

The JCHS partners with the Antique Car Museum of Iowa to provide a reduced admission price for both museums on this special day.

Open House: Xtream Arena & GreenState Family Fieldhouse

The ArenaCo board members and Xtream Arena & GreenState Family Fieldhouse staff invite the community to come out to Vesta for a community open house. At this month’s event, we will hear from Johnson County Historical Society Director, Alexandra McKendree about their eventual relocation into the new facility attached to Xtream Arena. Also, hear from city representatives, Mortenson Construction, staff members from facility operators, and Spectra Venue Management. A short program will start at 5:30pm. Hope to see you there!
