Please bare with us as we build the website and functionality of our website to meet the needs of our members and the general public. Initially we will try to get basic information about the Historical Society on this page followed by more informational content about projects we are involved in and items that we sell.


Please feel free to contact us about any ideas you have and would like to see on the website. A few ideas we are thinking about:

1. Membership enrollment online

2. Members only access to past Historian Journals online

3. Purchase Historians and other publications by the Historical Society.
