WHAT DO WE DO?

The members of the Arundel Historical Society recognize that Arundel has a long and unique history.  As the town grows and changes, we run the risk of much of that heritage being forever lost.

Many parts of our history are available as physical artifacts: photographs, maps, letters and memoirs, tools, and things made by local people.  Other, and perhaps more precious, aspects of our heritage lie in the memories of our long-time residents and the stories they can tell us.  We will be unfortunate indeed if we do not capture and record those pieces of our past.  The AHS is committed to doing just that.

 

HOW DO WE DO IT?    

The AHS meets regularly once each month and occasionally more often as we work on specific projects or events.  Some of our time is spent planning fund-raising activities and building our membership base. 

We also arrange opportunities for Arundel residents to share their memories and experiences growing up and living in our town.

In addition, we publish a newsletter, Yore Connection, to keep our members informed about progress, issues, and coming events.
