The Louisiana Area Historical Museum held a “Tear Up the Loan” party Monday, Aug. 26 at the home of board President Judy Schmidt.

Thanks to donations and fund-raisers, the museum has formally paid off the remaining balance of the $75,000 loan it took out in August 2005 to buy and renovate its building at 304 Georgia St. in downtown Louisiana.
