The old Wartburg City Hall building will be home to a museum operated by the Morgan County Genealogical and Historical Society.
MCGHS to open museum in Wartburg

The old Wartburg City Hall building will not be vacant much longer. At Monday evening’s meeting of City Council, the Morgan County Genealogical and Historical Society (MCGHS) agreed to purchase the facility for $51,000.

As a nonprofit business, MCGHS would normally not have the funds to make such a purchase, but that all changed recently.

“We’re very excited,” MCGHS Treasurer Barbara Langley said. “A private donor contacted us and offered to establish a museum for the genealogical society.”
