>Algiers Historical Society

>Tyrone Casby, Big Chief of the Mohawk Hunters, Algiers’ Mardi Gras Indian Tribe, will discuss the history and culture of “masking Indian” on the West Bank. It’s at 10 am in the Carriage House behind the Algiers Courthouse, 225 Morgan, Algiers Point.

Please join us for this free event. Coffee and goodies will be served.

The Algiers Historical Society was formed to promote and preserve the history of Algiers, through both formal historical research and the encouragement of storytelling by natives and long-time residents. This history is shared through a quarterly newsletter called the “Algerine” , and through monthly meetings. We have also launched=2 0an Algiers Oral History project.

Our monthly meetings are entertaining as well as informative, with different speakers and topics each month. They are held on the third Saturday of each month, usually at the Algiers Museum (directly behind the Algiers Courthouse, 225 Morgan Street) at 10:00am. Doors open at 9:45am. Free subscriptions of the “Algerine” are available to local libraries and schools.

Thanks again,
