The Hunt for Historical Information 

The Holt County Extension staff and council members are trying to gather history on Holt County Extension. We have found very little. We have found pictures dating back to 1920 but there is a lot of gaps. If you or someone you know has information on the history of the Extension Office, county agents and clubs or if you have information, documents or stories that you would like to share and have preserved with other Holt County Extension items, please send the items into the office or drop them off. All help and information is much appreciated. Thank you!
