The Eudora Area Historical Society will have its January Program and meeting on Thursday, January 16 at 7:30pm at Eudora City Hall.

Benny Dean will present on the Eudora Lumberyard Fire of 1990 for the Program for this meeting.
If you lived in Eudora on September 1, 1990, it was a day you will never forget. The largest fire in Eudora’s history consumed the Eudora Lumberyard and Eudora Train Depot that day. Both were a total loss. The fire was so large it was seen from miles around. At this Program, former Eudora Fire Chief Benny Dean will provide you with a first hand account of how Eudora Fire crews battled the massive fire.

Contact Ben Terwilliger, 785-690-7900,, for additional information.

This event is free and open to the public. We hope to see you there!
