Mission Statement

The Vernon Historical Society is a volunteer operated, non-profit organization. The purpose of the Society is to create interest and activity in the field of local history.

The Museum building serves as a repository for a variety of collected materials that are available to the general public for research.

These collections aid historians, genealogists, and interested citizens in research, and provide source materials for exhibits, publications and programs.

During Museum hours, volunteers are present to answer questions and provide access to collected materials.

Notice to our Visitors and Friends:
The Vernon Historical Society will be closed for the month of December for the holiday season and will reopen on Thursday, January 4, 2018.

We can be reached by email at vernonhs@sbcglobal.net during this time.Books and materials for the annual Book Sale can be dropped off starting in January.

Best Wishes for a  joyous Holiday. See you next year!
