Welcome to Our Blog!

Hi, folks! Welcome to the Munichburg Memories blog! The Old Munichburg Association sponsors it, and the primary writer is Walter A. Schroeder, president of the association.

Until recently, members of the association have received these brief essays and stories in e-mails, along with the meeting minutes, but this blog enables us to offer an online archive of these essays.

If you get the Jefferson City News Tribune, you have probably seen the "Munichburg Memories" photos that we post before Oktoberfest to help publicize that event. Those installments have proven quite popular!

Clearly, people like to read about Munichburg history and look at old photos, but even though this blog might seem like it's "just for fun," it serves an educational purpose, too.

Also, with this blog, we hope to inspire you, our readers, to become active in improving and strengthening our historic neighborhood.

If you are interested in Jefferson City's historic Southside, we hope you'll join the Old Munichburg Association (we offer individual and business memberships), and become active in our group. Visit our official website to learn more about us!

We're also on Facebook, and if you "friend" us there, you'll receive updates on Munichburg matters as well as notices when new posts appear on this blog.

Thanks, and enjoy the blog!
