Historical Society

Purpose


The Whitehall Historical Society was established in 1999 to recognize and celebrate the City’s past. Approximately 250 individuals and businesses comprise its membership, which continues to grow as the society has established its first headquarters on the grounds of the Whitehall Community Park.

The society participates regularly in local and statewide events, including National Night Out, July Fourth activities, and the Ohio Historical Society’s annual meeting of preservation groups in the Region Six (Central Ohio) area. The latter was hosted by the society in 2009, during which it provided an open house “sneak peak” of its new headquarters. This event focused on the group’s acquisition and construction of an all-steel, prefabricated Lustron home in which to establish its headquarters.

Headquarters


With the establishment of a permanent base of operations, the society is making plans to become a more viable and effective organization in its efforts to research, recognize, and educated the community of its history. Numerous goals have been established with an emphasis on creating greater interest and involvement with the society from the community.
