The Collection meeting room in Meridian will be place to be Thursday, March 26 at 1 p.m. to have an intriguing history lesson on an interesting site and unique character of Bosque and Hill counties. Members of the Bosque County Genealogical Society will be hosts.

Speaking on the Steiner Valley area, and particularly about the infamous Dr. Josephus Steiner, will be Will Lowrance of Hillsboro. Lowrance and his wife, Betty, are retired educators. Will is a native of Hill County, past mayor of Hillsboro, chairman of the Hill County Historical Commission and a self-proclaimed history buff, especially of the area surrounding what is still known as Steiner Valley.

The program is open and free to the public, and will follow a very brief business meeting. The Collection meeting room is located downstairs in the historic Lumpkin Building on the corner of Highways 144 and 22, at the blinking red light in Meridian. Parking is available around the courthouse square or one block north, near the senior citizens building.
