Welcome to Chillicothe, Missouri

Chillicothe Mayor Chuck Haney, who devoted his life to community service, worked at the Chillicothe Constitution-Tribune for 34 years and served as its editor and publisher from 1980 until 1998, passed away May 5 at Hedrick Medical Center in Chillicothe. He was 81. Haney was serving his sixth term as mayor, having been elected to the position first in 2007. It is unknown at this time whether Councilman-at-Large Reed Dupy, whose position also is that of mayor pro-tem, will be sworn in as mayor. Haney served as councilman-at-large from 2001 until his election as mayor in 2007. Haney was well-known throughout Missouri in media, sports, government and political circles and was known as, perhaps, Chillicothe's biggest promoter.

Plans were put into action recently to move the Bethel AME Church from 202 Henry Street to a new location next to the Grand River Historical Society and Museum. The church, which was dedicated in 1868, is believed to be the first AME Church built north of the Missouri River post-Civil War. Brent Kline purchased the property the church sits on and has donated the church to the museum. With the help of two area foundations, the museum has raised enough funds to move the building, but an an additional $45,000 is needed just to complete phase one. To help the museum save this piece of Chillicothe history, tax deductible contributions may be made payable to the Grand River Historical Society and Museum, AME Church Moving Fund.
