Elk Township Historical Society

March 1, 2021  

The purpose of the Elk Township Historical Society is to promote an appreciation of Elk Township history and its natural environment, particularly the contribution of its one-room schools. Another purpose is to provide a Community Center offering educational programs for all ages and a place for organizations to hold meetings and groups to hold less formal gatherings, such as showers and graduation parties. A spacious playing field, a well-equipped playground and a modern pavilion provide a perfect pastoral setting for family reunions.

Current Projects/Needs:

Paint three exterior walls of the wooden school buildings.  (The fourth wall was restored and repainted in 2020.)

Replace a large window in the Community Center library room that has cracked and re-caulk all of the windows.

Provide funding to preserve genealogical data and historical exhibits in the Museum.
