Black Earth Historical Society has both a Facebook page and group

Please follow + join

  • If you are on Facebook, the Black Earth Historical Society has an official Facebook page administered by Historical Society board member Gary Ballweg. Like and follow our page for the absolute latest news and event updates. Here's a link to the official Black Earth Historical Society page (or linked below in our contact information). 
  • The BEHS page is separate from the Facebook group Gary also administers called Black Earth History. With nearly 1,000 members, the Black Earth History group allows for more interaction and reminiscing about Black Earth than the official Black Earth Historical Society page. 
  • It's a good idea to both follow the page and join the group.
