  During the winter season The Lewis County Historical Society may be closed ANY or ALL days, due to bad weather.


The Historical Society is a non-profit organization.

The Lewis County Historical Society is run by all volunteers.  Our way of giving back to the communities and preserving our history for future generations.  Without our great volunteers we could not exist.  There have been many people since the organization was formed in 1976 who have had a hand in making it what it is today.  We thank all the past and present volunteers and members for your support!  

We receive no federal funding thus all the money to keep the doors open is made by the hard work of our dedicated volunteers.  We earn this operational money through memberships, book sales, donations and  whatever fund raisers we can do from time to time.  

We would like to thank all of you for visiting our site and for your continued support through your yearly memberships , donations, and purchasing items from the Lewis County Historical Society. You are making an investment in preserving our heritage.

We have an assortment of historical and genealogical related books for sale.
