The Hugo Community Church and the Hugo Neighborhood Association & Historical Society (Hugo Neighborhood) have entered into a history project agreement to reproduce the church’s historical journals into a format for sharing with its neighbors and the public.

This history project is a specific commitment of the Hugo Neighborhood, with the permission of the Hugo Community Church, to develop the church’s journals into an electronic format for public sharing as determined by either party. For example, copies of new church journal documents might be made and shared, publication could occur in The Daily Courier’s "Mondays Make History," information might be distributed via email, and/or web page publication could occur.

This project is part of a program in which the Hugo Neighborhood aims to promote the social welfare of its Hugo neighbors, which is by working to preserve, protect, and enhance their rural livability through recording their rich community history.

We do this because we believe the quality of rural life in Hugo is enhanced through citizen knowledge of its history and the sense of community that a historical perspective facilitates.


On May 25, 2002, three neighbors of the Hugo Neighborhood volunteered to transcribe (type) the Hugo Community Church’s records into an electronic format: Art Chatham, Carole Heaphy, and Mike Walker. Pastor Terry Isabell accepted the offer and the church journals were transmitted into the care of Mike Walker August 2002.
