Mount Ida Preservation Association

Mount Ida Preservation Association We meet on the 2nd Wednesday of every month at the Mt Ida Preservation Hall. Come by for coffee, cookies and community discussions at 6PM and ask to join!
The nonprofit organization was founded in 1997 and boasts a growing membership and renewed activity surrounding the Mount Ida Preservation Hall and the Mount Ida Cemetery. The group hopes to repair the hall and make it into a community resource. Additionally, the group hopes to help keep records for the cemetery and assist in the mapping of the grave stones and to preserve the historical documents pertaining to the grave sites.
