For People Interested in the History of Tallahassee
Founded in 1933, the Tallahassee Historical Society, Inc. is a 501(c) (3) organization that welcomes individuals who enjoy learning about and sharing state and local history. Evening meetings on the second Thursday from October to April offer programs by experts on topics ranging from history and culture to architecture, archeology, and preservation. In May, members gather for a festive picnic. The society also schedules daytime lectures and partners with other organizations to present special events. Every activity features stimulating conversation and rewarding fellowship.
The THS website contains an assortment of information about our organization, meeting information, local activities and events of a historic nature, announcements, and research interests of members. It includes a short history of our society and the location of our archives. We are actively involved in partner relationships, referrals and maintain contact information to other organizations with similar goals in preservation and sharing of historical information.
