Our active membership has grown to over 60. Members enjoy a range of benefits including bi-monthly meetings covering a wide variety of topics. An extensive collection of locally historic items is available for members to see, enjoy, and learn from. Our most recent aquisition is from the estate of Lester Faust of Douglassville. The collection contains many household items from the colonial and victorian period, giving viewers an insight into the everyday lifestyle of that era.

Additionally, the Society hosts special events throughout the year including tours, archaeological digs, dedications, and visits to historic homesteads. Many members become involved in volunteer projects, historic preservation efforts, and the like.
