There are a few historical Merrill events described in these videos along with some videos of the Historical Society's events.
You have probably seen requests for information on Facebook about people and places in Merrill. These are from Doug Iwen's students. He is a Merrill High School teacher who offers a class to focus on collecting the history of Merrill. The students do individual research on a building or area that they are interested and produce a 2 minute video of their work. The videos are placed on a map of Merrill so you will know the placement of the buildings they are reviewing.
