The Vandalia Area Historical Society is reminding Vandalia area residents that it recently unveiled new exhibits on display at their location on S. Main St.
Some of the notable additions includes large photos from yesterday of Main St., the Vandalia Banking Association Building, the old train depot, and the “Fire-Brick Factory;”  a Genii B. Clark display, who was born in 1887, with a beautiful dress featured; a tribute display with old boy/cub scout uniforms worn by Mike Wormsley and one from Boy Scout Troop 54 charter member Joe Griggs, among others; a fun display of baby photos featuring nearly 75 pictures, and more. A timely military display is also featured as Veteran’s Day is just one week away. There is a sampling from Virginia Cafer’s World War II scrapbook noting locals who were killed in service.
