The museum board has decided to sell athletic trophies and music trophies from the Odebolt and Odebolt-Arthur Schools because of lack of display space. If you are an alumni and wish to own a bit of your high school history, please see the .pdf list of trophies for sale.
Other items for sale
The museum also offers historic note cards, the history book published for the 2002 Quasquicentennial, and old school yearbooks from various years for sale. Note that the yearbooks are reasonably priced ans are for sale to Odebolt or OA alumni only so as to avoid people buying quantities and profiting by selling on on-line auctions.
