Why History?

History contributes to community education, economy, and health and well-being.

History teaches critical thinking, inspires leadership, and becomes the foundation for future generations.

History builds community because our connections and commitment to one another are strengthened when we share stories and experiences.

History is a catalyst for economic growth because people are drawn to communities that have preserved a strong sense of historical identity and character, whether as tourists or new neighbors.
