The Roane County Historical Society, Inc. will hold its first meeting for 2015 on Thursday, March 26 at 7 p.m. at the Roane County Library, 110 Parking Plaza in Spencer.
The Roane County Historical Society was formed in 1993 when several Roane County folk showed interest in preserving the county's history and researching their family genealogy. The Society's membership holds steady with about 200 members from all over West Virginia and the U. S. Annual dues are just $12. We welcome new members.
We continue being about the business of preserving and sharing stories of Roane County's history and its people. The society publishes a quarterly newsletter, "The Journal," which includes interesting stories and photos contributed by members. Meeting programs are presented to enhance genealogical research and annual projects are completed to preserve an element of Roane County history.
A list of society publications can be found on this website or interested parties may request a copy by writing Roane County Historical Society, Inc. at P.O. Box 161, Spencer, WV 25276-0161. The society also has an extensive history library housed on the lower level of the Roane County Library. The Society's library is open for genealogical research during regular library hours.
We look forward to greeting many of you at the Thursday, March 26th meeting. Members are urged to attend and visitors are always welcomed. If you have questions about membership or society activities please contact, Linda Liss at WVRoots@aol.com
