In 1949, the citizens of Butler County gathered in Poplar Bluff to celebrate the county's 100th birthday. The Centennial Jubilee was marked with dinners, parades, train rides, costumes and contests. The photos shown here were pulled from the Daily American Republic archives with no additional information or identifiers on any of the citizens and/or events pictured. We ask our readers to look closely at these vintage images in hopes of properly identifying these treasured photos from a cherished community event.
