Linden Heritage Annual Meeting
The annual membership meeting of the Linden Heritage Foundation will be 2 p.m. Saturday at the Linden Garden Club, 300 E. Houston St. in Linden.
On the agenda are a review of the Old Linden Firehouse Project and election of directors.
A historical presentation will be given by George Frost Jr., teacher, coach and historian of Maud, Texas. He is author of "The Writings of J.H. Frost" and a member of the Cass County Genealogical Society.
Frost traces the time of the Populist movement in Cass County through the use of newspaper columns of the Cass County Sun (Linden Standard) and letters of his great-grandfather J.H. "Jim" Frost.
He will discuss how 1889 to 1904 was a dynamic political period for Cass County that included a special election to cede 176 square miles of west Cass County to Morris County and move the county seat from Linden to Atlanta.
All interested in Cass County history are invited to attend. A reception will follow. For more information on the Linden Heritage Foundation, go to lindenheritage.org/.
