At the March 9, 2020 meeting of the Board of Directors of the Gothenburg Historical Museum it was deemed for the health and safety of our volunteers and visitors that the museum would be closed until such time that the CDC relaxed restrictions on businesses being open to the public due to the COVID pandemic. After visiting with many volunteers, they indicated they were anxious about working and would rather stay healthy.

A new $19,500 information kiosk will eventually be installed at the Gothenburg Cemetery. Payment for the kiosk was approved Jan. 5 by the Gothenburg City Council to Windy Prairie Systems.
