Susan Young has been the Shiloh Museum’s outreach coordinator since 1994. She is a fifth-generation Ozarker. Before settling in the Ozarks, her kinfolk hailed from the southern Appalachians in Kentucky and Tennessee. There’s no denying Susan's hillbilly roots. In fact, that heritage is something she is quite proud of and passionate about, which makes the Shiloh Museum the perfect place for Susan to hang her hat. Her areas of interest include religion, cemeteries, and traditional folkways of the Upland South. In her spare time, Susan enjoys gardening, traveling, birdwatching, and genealogy.
Coming up in June, Susan will present one of her favorite programs at Hobbs State Park, but one she rarely does. She calls it, “Literally Ozarks”. According to Susan, “I’ve selected readings from various authors to accompany photos from our extensive collection.” Susan has a humorous, thoughtful, and provocative way to look at our Ozark history and its literature. You won’t want to miss this unique and entertaining program.
