Frenchtown Heritage Museum and Research Center, located 1121 North Second Street in St. Charles, is happy to announce an interesting traveling exhibit that shares the history and German heritage of St. Charles County opening on June 17th. The German Heritage of St. Charles County tells the story of German emigration to St. Charles County beginning in the 1830s, its involvement during the Civil War and the industry that followed afterwards. At 2:00 pm on Sunday, June 28, 2015 the exhibit curator Dorris Keeven-Franke, President of St. Charles County German Heritage, will present a program on the exhibit will be followed by a discussion. Explaining the emigration waves which began by the thousands and the areas in which they settled in St. Charles County, she completes the story with the heritage that remains in St. Charles County today as well. Keeven-Franke is a public historian, author, curator of the traveling exhibit Utopia, and Director of Missouri Germans Consortium. The ten-panel traveling exhibit was created by the St. Charles County German Heritage Club in 2014 and funded with the assistance of several sponsors to travel to various venues around St. Charles County, such as museums, schools, libraries and churches.  For more information or tours of the museum call Museum Director Dorothy Boshears at 636-946-8682
