Mission

Since 1893, the Society has maintained a research library and museum, open to members and the public at no charge, and from time to time publishes a journal containing material relevant to its purpose, which is sent to members at no charge. Non-members may subscribe to this journal for a nominal sum as determined from time to time by the Board of Directors. The Library's 130-year old collection, which exceeds 25,000 titles, specializes in genealogical and early American history resources with emphasis on the Colonial and Revolutionary War period and 19th century America. It has a fine collection of 18th and 19th century vital records, family histories, American military history and English genealogy. Many of these resources are not found elsewhere.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

1. Provide a unique collection of books, manuscripts and photographs for study and research by people of all ages and backgrounds.

2. Maintain rotating exhibits and offering guided tours to school-aged children, students and adults, individually and in groups.

3. Assist patrons in their use of the wonderful collection of books and manuscripts we have maintained for more than 125 years.

Stage special events highlighting awareness of our unique 129-year old Library and Museum, thereby drawing in the public at large. Patrons from all walks of life are welcome, and indeed are desirous of learning the rich heritage of our country so often overlooked in school curriculum today.

Increase charitable giving to support operations and facilities.

Develop an endowment fund of secure the future of our Library and Museum.

We are fortunate to own our own building free of debt, enabling us to focus on an endowment to help perpetuate our programs and collections for future generations.

We have begun right-sizing our collection and holdings, continued to make improvements to our facility, and nurtured a public awareness of the wonderful jewel we have.
