    How do you open up the blue file boxes to see the info when I click on a file box it just opens another file box on another page. Ken

      Hi Ken – Sorry for the confusion. The blue file box is an icon indicating that the documents listed here are only available at the Little Cities Archive in Shawnee not online. Next time you are in the area stop by and check out the Little Cities Archive in downtown Shawnee.
