The Wells County Historical Society was founded in 1935, initiated to plan the 1937 Centennial Celebration of Wells County. Its purpose then, as now, is to preserve the rich heritage of Wells County and its residents - past and present.
Membership in the society provides at least two meetings each year with programs of historical interest, as well as entertainment. In addition to the Museum operation, an annual quilt show, the Old American Craft Day, a Victorian Christmas open house, and other special public interest programs are presented - all open to the public. An informative and entertaining newsletter is mailed frequently to members. We invite you to join our more than 300 members who are interested in Wells County's history.
