SHELL ROCK MUSIC ASSOCIATION

In the fall of 1964, Iowa's Governor Hughes suggested that each Iowa com­munity make an effort to welcome its teachers with a special program. Organized to provide the entertainment for Shell Rock's program, the vocal and instrumental group formed at that time became the Shell Rock Music Association. The basic show format has remained consistent. A standard stage band and a mixed chorus support a series of center stage acts drawn from band and cho­rus members. A variety of musical styles include popular tunes of the day, golden oldies, and comedy acts. Shell Rock's Boyd Building has been the "theater" since the beginning. Despite the limitations, the auditorium helps bring a Broadway feel to Main Street USA. The auditorium has been named "The Everson Auditorium" in recognition of Dale and Bev Everson's contributions to the Music Association and the community.

SHELL ROCK HISTORICAL SOCIETY

The Shell Rock Community Historical Society was formed in 2006, to salvage a historic house in Shell Rock.  The house was in a flood plain and was deemed historically significant by the Iowa Historical Society.   Money was raised, a lot purchased and on June 23, 2006, the house was moved to 127 E. Adair St., just across from the school in Shell Rock. The museum opened July 4, 2007, with over 350 visitors that weekend.  Since then, the museum has opened from May to October for visits, and as contacted for special tours.

The mission of the Society is to preserve history for future generations of Shell Rock residents.  The 1920's Craftsman-style house is used to house historical artifacts. Pictures dealing with Shell Rock's history, belongings, tools, agricultural implements, books, school items, etc., are sought to use for future exhibits.

Anyone is invited to join the Society.  All are welcome.  We are always looking for help in our projects.  Volunteers are sought to guide in the museum.  Let us know where you are interested and we will get you involved.
