Historical Societies

Historical societies are dedicated to researching, interpreting, and preserving local history. There are historical societies all over the state with many being associated with museums. A great way to become involved is to ATTEND an event or lecture, VOLUNTEER your services, and INVOLVE your family and friends with learning about and preserving local history.

ATTEND- historical societies hold lecture series, organize reenactments of events, provide interpreted exhibits, lead historic tours, and more.

VOLUNTEER- these societies often have little funds to operate with and your skills and time are valuable.

INVOLVE- historical societies exist to generate public interest in the preservation of local history. Inviting others to attend events, volunteer their time, and support these organizations is important to their continued existence.
