It is through support from people like you that we are able to continue to protect the precious artifacts, photographs and documents that tell the story of our home, heritage and history.
Our mission is to collect, preserve, and display items of historical nature; to promote interest in and disseminate information about the history of Athens County and its people and to provide an organizational structure for affiliations by groups with similar historical interests.
Our vision is to become the premier historical society, museum and genealogical center for all of Southeastern Ohio. The organization will preserve and maintain relevant artifacts, develop educational experiences for the public, and provide professional quality service to the public, researchers and interested member of the public.
