Hanna Howard

Why did you join the West Des Moines Historical Society Board of Directors?

“I am a WDMHS board member because I firmly believe that understanding, preserving, and sharing our past is the key to building a better future.”

What do you do in your free time?

“I love spending time with my spouse, Jordan; our favorite things to do are hike and watch women’s soccer. I am also a backpacker! I’m planning a solo trek in the Ozark Mountains this fall.”

If you could time travel to any time, past or future, When and where would that be?

“I would travel to Los Angeles’s Laurel Canyon neighborhood in the late 1960s or 70s to catch the music scene! I love Joni Mitchell, Carole King, and the Mamas & the Papas, and it would be awesome to see any of them play live in their heyday.”
