|The Historical Society was formed and

In 1983, a group of individuals had $ 500.00 to open a museum for one week for the local homecoming celebration, and the museum was such a success that they decided to keep it open! The Historical Society received 501c3 status in 1985.
The Society functions today as a monthly meeting organization which has become a strong voice in the community on such issues as: historic preservation, community development, "sense of community identity", and quality of life.
The Society has initiated many activities and projects over the years for the good of the community. One such project is a museum which is intended to be a repository for valued items and otherwise a "community center" - a focus of community energy, activity, and pride.
