Collecting the Great War

The Mascoutah Historical Society needs your help to tell the stories of the men who served overseas and at home during the First World War, and how the war affected the town of Mascoutah.

If you have information, photographs, documents, newspapers, or other artifacts, please consider lending them to the society for an exhibit to open at the Heritage Museum in 2017.
