ABOUT THE HISTORICAL SOCIETY

Our History

WVHS logo
The Walhonding Valley Historical Society was formed in 2001 -- the culmination of a vision by community leader Marvin Davis, who died two years earlier. Marvin wished there to be a way for people to share in preserving the past for future generations so they can cherish its traditions and learn from its lessons. The Society is governed by a Board of Trustees, which has adopted bylaws and incorporated with the state as a non-profit corporation.
