heGreat 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 and people by local people who shaped history elsewhere, preservation efforts, publication of historical essays, collection of artifacts and photographs, oral history interviews, genealogical research, and tours and dinners at historic sites. We hope you will join in our activities and in supporting these efforts with your membership.
