Polk Pioneers

Since 1975, the PCHA has encouraged and supported the collection of oral histories of Polk County residents. Member organizations of the PCHA Heritage Partner Committee seek potential candidates from their communities who are 75 years or older and have lived in Polk County for 50 years or more. These Polk Pioneers participate in an interview to document their lives and contributions to our rich history. They are recognized at the Annual Pioneer Luncheon and PCHA Business Meeting that is traditionally held in June.
