In preparation of its 50th anniversary next year, the West Des Moines Historical Society (WDMHS) wants to capture stories about a community that’s steeped in historic moments and personal memories for its residents – both past and present.

Whether you graduated from one of the first classes at Valley High School, helped sandbag Valley Junction during the floods of 1993, or waited in line to be one of the first people through the doors of Jordan Creek TownCenter, you are part of history. Maybe you heard a grandparent talk about the “good old days” and want those stories and memories preserved. So do we!

Below is a form for you to share those memories with the West Des Moines Historical Society. Please share your thoughts, memories and stories with us. We may be in touch with you to include your story in an upcoming 50th Anniversary Project.
