Our mission is to collect, preserve and celebrate the unique history and heritage of Ozark County, Missouri.


Our home is a renovated general merchandise store building located on the west side of the square in the county seat of Gainesville. Purchased with generous donations of supporters of the OCGHS in 2010, the 1920s-era building now houses a well-stocked genealogy library and provides a friendly, cheerful place for ever-changing events and exhibits in keeping with our mission.


Our organization, founded in 1986, offers membership to anyone with an interest in Ozark County, whether by birth or adoption. Meetings are held quarterly, and those who pay dues receive a subscription to the popular newsletter The Old Mill Run.



Here is a sample of the Old Mill Newsletter of which a subscription is included in your Membership to the OCGHS.
