The Grundy County Historical Collections has received an opportunity to take ownership of the old Presbyterian church in Morrison. The church had its last service February 7th 1965, before merging with the Reinbeck United Presbyterian Church. Currently the church is owned by Henry Schick, and has been offered to the Grundy County Historical Collections Board.
The board is in discussion on how funds could be generated to bring the building up to code to be used as a museum building. Ideally the church would be restored to what it was like in the 1960’s, with ADA considerations so it could be seen by the public.
The building is in need of a lot of restoration and updates to be able to have the church open to the public. Estimates have been gathered to have the church become a museum facility, and they are large. Early estimates are at the $300,000.00 amount, and like everything else continuing to rise.
The board has decided to reach out to the public to see if there is any interest in monetary assistance to the project. Honestly the future of the project may rest in the feedback we receive from you. If you have an interest in helping preserve the church, please send responses to the Grundy County Conservation office at 204 4th Street, Morrison Iowa, 50657. Thank you in advance. We look forward to hearing from you.

In partnership with the National Association of Counties (NACo) and the Iowa State Association of Counties (ISAC), Grundy County has installed a flag retirement box, at no cost to the county, on the first-floor lobby of the Grundy County Courthouse, 706 G Avenue, Grundy Center. This box is in addition to the retirement box that serves the same purpose located at the Grundy Center Community Building. The United States Flag Code prescribes flag etiquette – everything from flying it near other flags to instructions on how to raise and lower it. “The flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem of display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning,” says the code. Flags should be folded respectfully before being placed in the box. Grundy County will then be responsible for the proper disposal of the worn flags.
“This centrally-located drop-off, in addition to the one at the Grundy Center Community Building, provides convenience while respecting our national symbol,” said Mark Schildroth, Grundy County Board of Supervisors Chairperson. “The county is unified in helping enable our citizens to respect our great nation while disposing of old or worn flags.”
GRUNDY COUNTY WILL REQUIRE A BILL OF SALE FOR TRANSFERRING VEHICLE TITLES BEGINNING JANUARY 1, 2022.
