History of the Monongahela Area Historical Society

The Historical Society was formed and chartered in 1961 as a project of the Friday Conversational Club.  The Friday Club was formed in 1897, and disbanded in 1975.  Until 1975, the president of the Friday Club was a vice-president of the Historical Society.

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.
