Geauga County Historical Society. We're not active members but attend some events at the Century Village in Burton, OH. It seems to be growing and the annual Historical Engine Society show is more crowded each year.

I'm a 12 year member of our Bd of Directors, Douglas Cty MN His Soc (Alexandria area) to include a historic Lutheran Church. Very Scandinavian area, with a few loose Krauts thrown in. Lots of fun, but again like mentioned, declining interest. People my age (75) that remember our Great Grandparents that homesteaded their farms in the 1870s are passing on. My kids, barely remember my parents, let alone that older era..........

I belong to our towns historical/museum association. I joined as much to keep it going as for my interest in things historical. Seems no one wants to involve themselves in civic organizations anymore, and yet people complain when those civic organizations die out and the events they put on disappear. I'm not "from here" and I don't have a lot of local history interests, but I find enough interesting things to stay a member.

If it wasn't for our 2 churches and our historical assoc, there wouldn't be a thing happening in this town. I couldn't even get people interested in helping to erect a town Christmas tree!
