How It All Began

Beginning in January 1999, a number of meetings were held which culminated in the formation and incorporation of The Blandford & Area Historical Society. The Society is now a registered charitable organization.

A great deal has happened since the Society came into being, and the membership is encouraged by the degree of support and interest shown in the Society's activites. We meet 6 months of the year in Blandford, and at the meetings have a presentation on specific topics such as genealogy, the music and folklore of our ancestors and use of the internet for research.
