The Mt. Angel Historical Society

The Mt. Angel Historical Society, a community resource is dedicated to the preservation and interpretation of the history of Mt. Angel and surrounding areas. Our primary goal is to collect, identify, and preserve historical information, pictures, and items of local interest.
The Mt. Angel Historical Society was incorporated as a public benefit non-profit on July 29th, 2010 but it actually had its beginnings long before then. Years before, a local resident with a passion for history, began collecting and cataloging pictures and other memorabilia about Mt Angel as a hobby. The collection grew larger as more people started taking an interest in the project. Displays were set up at different events in town and people started questioning why Mt. Angel, with such a rich and unique history, didn’t have a historical society. It wasn’t long before meetings started, a mission statement was developed, by laws written and officers elected. We are fortunate to have an energetic group of volunteers who are excited about collecting, organizing and preserving our history. We are committed to creating a historical society that will be a true asset to our community.
