Support the Historical Society

Contribute materials

Don’t throw away those old letters, diaries, or photos. The Historical Society is always looking for items that illustrate the past. Bring them to the Museum on Tuesday mornings or call for an appointment.


We always need help for events and to help maintain the collection. Call Adelia Bardwell at 665-3837 or email us at [email protected]
