Research

The Historical Society welcomes all researchers to our Museum at any level of research.

If the research is extensive we ask that an appointment is arranged prior to arrival so an area can be made available for viewing records with the assistance of a staff member.

Within the guide lines of our Collection Policy we ask that researchers wear cotton gloves to eliminate damage while viewing aged documents or objects.
