Our current and upcoming projects include repairing one of the doors on the Solomon Temple Barn, repairing windows in the Old Town Hall, setting up signs for significant historic sites, and itemizing and describing all the Society's artifacts.

We are always on the lookout for people who might be interested in helping with the Historical Society. Any skill is welcomed. We need enthusiastic individuals who are willing to plan and organize and learn.

See any board member for more information.


The Heath Historical Society is a tax-exempt 501(c)3 organization. We will gladly accept your tax-deductible donations of any size. We use donations to help maintain the precious old buildings and to preserve - and gather - the various writings and artifacts related to Heath. Please consider donating to our organization to help us keep the history of Heath alive.

Shown below is a section of this year's quilt, to be auctioned off sometime and somehow in the near future. The Quilt Raffle has traditionally been one of our main fundraisers. Raffle tickets are usually sold throughout the year and at the Fair where the winner is announced on the last day, but of course that didn't happen this year. We haven't yet figured out how we'll do it, but we will! Watch this space and we'll have the auction method posted here as soon as we can. Meanwhile, just look at the image below and imagine how cool it will look on your bed or couch. Save your money so you'll be ready when we are!

A peek at this year's quilt!

New Donation to the Collection

We will periodically feature an artifact or image recently donated to the Heath Historical Society Collection.

A reminder of the Conservation Camp that existed in Heath's HO Cook Forest, this donation included both.

This group of young men are assumed to be workers at the Camp, the image was accompanied by a wonderful wooden footlocker. Featuring several different wood carvings, one image takes a bit of "seeing" - the portrait of a young man. Do you see it?
