Historical Society

The Morgan Township Historical Society is an organization which exists to collect and preserve historical records of the township. These resources will be made available to educate and promote an appreciation of the local history. The Morgan Township Historical Society is a 501c3 not-for-profit organization.  Donations, monetary, photos or Morgan Township items, to the Historical Society are gladly accepted and greatly appreciated.  All donations are tax deductible. Please contact a Morgan Township Officer to make a donation.  

The Historical Society meetings are held at the Morgan Township Administration Building located at 3141 Chapel Road on the third Saturday of each month at 10:00 am from March through December. Visitors are always welcome to the meetings where coffee and cookies are available during the social period prior to the meeting of the day. Executive committee meetings, as convened by the President, are held in the newly restored 1858 Township House and Museum.

HISTORICAL SOCIETY UPDATE

The Morgan Township Historical Society started the 2020 year with big expectations and had planned various speakers and several fun events. However, the Covid-19 virus has put a hold on those plans and expectations. The Board has agreed to cancel the remaining meetings for the rest of 2020 and are working hard to reschedule the speakers and events for 2021. 

They have also decided not to collect dues for this year, but will collect dues for 2021 if the virus is under control and they may resume their monthly meetings. However, if you would like to donate to or become a member of the Historical Society, they will gladly accept your membership and/or donation. Please see below for how to become a member or make a donation. 

The Historical Society Board has also agreed to to allow the present officers to serve another year and stay in place for 2021. We  hope to begin meeting once again in March of 2021 and would like to thank everyone for supporting the Morgan Township Historical Society.
