Blame it all on my ROOTS!
Tracing your genealogy is a rewarding and addictive adventure. We can help by offering members free use of Ancestry.com and other search sites at our genealogy station. Members who have completed their research have donated copies for your use. You may be related!
If it happened in our community, it was probably printed in the Slater Paper or Tri-County Times. We have them all for you to research. You also have access to our hundreds of photos of school kids, weddings, town buildings, and even the first automobile delivered by horse and wagon.

Baseball and Basketball
The name "Slater" is synonymous with baseball and basketball. Our trophy cases are filled with the legacy of these sports along with scorebooks, photos, and memorabilia. Who hit the first home run under the lights? King Schaudt will even be there to greet you!
Events and Exhibits
Cemetery walks, Civil War history, harvest heritage events with the street lined with tractors, displays of wedding dresses and aprons, exhibits of school days and the joys of growing up in a small town have all been offered free to the community. These along with permanent displays make Heritage Hall a treasure in the community.
