Welcome to the Martin County Historical Society! Our Mission is to preserve and share the history of Martin County by acquiring, conserving, appropriately displaying, and making it accessible for viewing, research, and educational purposes. We hope you enjoy the many features of our site; please contact us if you have any questions or requests. Thank you for taking the time to enjoy Martin County’s History!
Winter seems to have returned to our part of the world for another year. Do not let that keep you away from the Pioneer Museum however! We remain open all year round with our normal business hours.
One of the most important things that we do here at the Martin County Historical Society is educate the county's youth about the history of the places and things around them. We offer every 1st, 3rd, and 5th grade class in the county an opportunity to schedule a free visit to the museum (including bus fees thanks to grants from the Martin County Youth Foundation!). We also offer after-hours tours for groups as well (for a small fee). Check out some of the pictures from the current school year!
Fairmont's 3rd Grade Came For A Visit!
Cub Scout Pack 57 came for an after hours tour!
St. James Lutheran's 7th and 8th graders came to work with the Martin County Genealogical Society for a fun day of Genealogy!
History is so very important to the youth of any generation - it helps create and strengthen ties between the places they live in and the people around them. History helps to build communities!
