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. Its other 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 lovely pastoral setting for family reunions.
Replace the south facing exterior wall of the former Scandia School,which currently houses the Elk Township Historical Society Museum. The Building and Grounds Committee of the Elk Township Historical Society is acquiring bids for replacing this wall, which has battled the elements for 130 years as it served our community, at first as a public school and in the past 20 years as a museum about life in Elk Township.
