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.

Upcoming Events
