The Moniteau County Historical Society will proceed with the building addition to the genealogy and research library.

The decision was made at a recent building committee meeting. Co-chairs Carl Gatlin and Paul Jungmeyer presided.

"We had decided that when about two-thirds of the funds were either in hand or pledged, it was time to begin the building," said Gatlin.

The old Eitzen building is now the home of the Moniteau County Historical Society. Much of the building serves as a museum. The ground floor of the left end of the building housed the post office before it moved to the "new" building across the street in 1937.
