to assist interested members of the community in locating information regarding their own family’s heritage;
to foster a connection between Arundel’s community members and Arundel’s history; and

WHAT WE DO
The members of the Arundel Historical Society recognize that Arundel has a long and unique history. As the town grows and changes, we run the risk of much of that heritage being forever lost.
Many parts of our history are available as physical artifacts: photographs, maps, letters and memoirs, tools, and things made by local people. Other, and perhaps more precious, aspects of our heritage lie in the memories of our long-time residents and the stories they can tell us. To capture and record those pieces of our past is indeed a challenge. The AHS is committed to doing just that.
In order to meet the goals delineated in our mission statement, the Arundel Historical Society is proposing to establish a site where:
two Arundel farmhouses both over 200 years old, will be preserved;
the Arundel Historical Society can house, preserve, and display photographs,documents, and artifacts of local historical significance;
Society members and others can gain access to genealogical and historical information; and
a building modeled after the North Chapel Church will be constructed to serve as a place for community groups, including the historical society, to meet and host events.
We hereby request support from a variety of donors. The initial phase of the project is estimated to cost $210,400, with additional monies required following the completion of that phase. We need upport both in the form of cash and donated services.
The Arundel Historical Society is grateful for any consideration you or your organization can give our project and any support you are able to provide.
