Hastings County Historical Society


A membership to the Hastings County Historical Society brings you into contact with a group of residents like yourself, who have an interest in the history of the County, both past and present.

Collectively, our members literally have hundreds of years worth of knowledge in researching, creating, and experiencing history in Hastings County and its surrounding areas.

We have members from all walks of life: from those who have a passion for the history of the area to those who just want to learn a little more about the community in which they live. Membership dues are an important source of revenue for financing our preservation and educational activities and for those members who have the time, their volunteer work is what has made the Society an important feature in the area since 1957.

Becoming a member of the Society enables you to vote at meetings, stand for election to the Board of Directors and receive a copy of our newsletter, The Outlook, along with other benefits throughout the year. The Hastings County Historical Society is a registered charity and an official receipt for income tax purposes will be sent to you for any donations over and above your membership dues. You can become a member of the Historical Society in a number of different ways:

  1. Come to one of our presentations or special events throughout the year
  2. Drop in to the Community Archives on the second floor of the Belleville Public Library and John M. Parrott Art Gallery
