Arthur and Area Historical Society was founded on January 29, 2003 to collect and preserve artifacts and documents of local and general interest.  Because Arthur is known as "Canada's Most Patriotic Village" there is a strong representation of its military history.  The Society is active in projects of many kinds throughout the community.  Members have initiated and worked on: four murals depicting area history; walking trails; signage for area historical sites; presentations for retirement homes; walking and bus tours; and many other projects and events.  Located at 146 George Street in Arthur, the Historical Rooms and displays are open to the public for viewing or research every Wednesday from 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm, or by appointment.  Monthly meetings with presentations on wide-ranging topics take place at the Rooms on the fourth Tuesday of every month from 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm.
