The Vision of the Chelsea Area Historical Society is to provide area residents a dynamic interaction with its history and heritage, and our Mission is to gather and preserve Chelsea area history for future generations, and to educate all generations.
Headline Story for 2015... We Have a Home!
WE DID IT!! The Chelsea Area Historical Society took possession of the house at 128 Jackson Street on December 5, 2014. Shortly after that, we were able to move all the office items and the storage items to our new home. Plans are to get everything settled in with a goal of opening our doors -- hopefully no later than spring 2015. Thanks to everyone who provided support, both toward the purchase and the physical support of assisting in our move. January is also the time to elect officers for the coming year. This should be a very exciting year for us!!! One of our next goals will be to pay off the mortgage. We'll post updates as we go along. Thanks again to everyone!
Perfect CAHS Home & Museum
The historic 1853 Boyd house at 128 Jackson Street is an ideal location for the organization’s permanent home. It sits directly across the street from Chelsea’s landmark depot, where CAHS holds its monthly public membership meetings. It is on the northern edge of the city’s foot traffic and will only enhance the city’s heritage tourism goals.
