A church built in Chillicothe about 150 years ago will be moved Sept. 18 from 202 Henry Street to its new location on property across from the Grand River Historical Society Museum located at 1401 Forest Drive. Pam Klingerman, Museum Curator, says the AME Church building is of significant historical value as it was dedicated in 1868 and is believed to be the first AME Church built north of the Missouri River post-Civil War. With the help of two area foundations, the Lambert Foundation and the Livingston County Community Foundation, the museum is raising funds to pay for the move. Tax deductible donations to help save this piece of Chillicothe history may be made payable to the Grand River Historical Society and Museum AME Church Moving Fund.

After days of heavy rain and storms, parts of Chillicothe remained under water recently as residents waited for river levels to recede. US 65 south of Chillicothe is now open, but getting to that point was a process. As river levels drop and the roads begin to dry, the Missouri Department of Transportation will begin the work to open the roads as quickly as possible. Tonya Lohman, District Maintenance and Traffic Engineer for the Northwest Part of the state says there is a process and every situation is a bit different. Lohman says on US 65, there are three bridges that cross water and each must be checked before the road is opened. No injuries were reported from the flooding, and damage was contained to farm fields in the area. Drive safely!
