The Great Falls Historical Society was organized in 1977 to promote community spirit by bringing the past into the present.

We do this through:

  • Monthly programs on local history
  • Preservation advocacy to protect historic structures in Great Falls
  • Speakers’ bureau presentations for interested groups
  • Programs, contests, and awards for students
  • Publication of historical essays
  • Collection and preservation of historic artifacts and photographs of Great Falls
  • Oral history interviews of current and earlier residents
  • Genealogical research
  • Tours of historic sites
  • Our newsletter, the Chronicler, keeps you abreast of Society activities and other items of historical interest in the community.

In addition, we have several particularly enjoyable programs each year that pull together our members in fellowship. These include potluck dinners and the annual banquet.

Membership is open to everyone with an interest in Great Falls' past, present, and future. Newcomers will find the Society a great way to become a part of the Great Falls community. Most meetings and activities are held in the Great Falls Library Meeting Room and the Great Falls Grange Hall.

The Great Falls Historical Society is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization
