Description

We provide safekeeping of the historical collections donated to the Society for the purpose of documenting, preserving, displaying and maintaining a generational bridge to the history of the community. An important part of the Society is to preserve and maintain the Society properties comprised of the East Village Meeting House on Barn Hill Road, the 1790 East Village-Barn Hill Schoolhouse on Wheeler Road, and our current restoration project and future museum, the Beardsley Homestead at 31 Great Ring Road.

History

The MONROE HISTORICAL SOCIETY was incorporated in 1959, and seeks to "preserve our heritage and the spirit of a people." The organization provides educational, cultural and social events, which encourage an insight into our history.
