Welcome to the Chelsea Area Historical Society! This is the principal organization for research and education about the interesting history and heritage of Chelsea, Michigan and the surrounding townships of Sylvan, Lima, Lyndon, and Sharon.
Chelsea is a city rich in history and CAHS is proud to be a vital part of maintaining and sharing our community's history to current generations and those to come (see "History of CAHS"). The CAHS is the caretaker of many rich artifacts from Chelsea's past. We also offer public history lectures throughout the year that are open to the public, as well as offer special events and fund raisers. Check out the upcoming events to see what is happening.
Our next meeting is December 9, 2013, at 6:30pm for our annual potluck holiday dinner. We are drawing another year to an end and would love to celebrate the holiday season with you all. At our next month’s meeting, December 9th, we will start a bit early at 6:30 pm at the Chelsea Depot. We will host the Depot Association, in appreciation of allowing us meeting space throughout the year, to a wonderful potluck dinner and share Chelsea history together. It is a casual evening of musical entertainment, mingling, and catching up with friends, both new and old.
CAHS will supply the beverages, dessert, and tableware. But we do ask that each of you bring a dish to pass. As in years past, let’s keep it simple by saying those with a last name beginning with A-L, please bring a main dish; and those with the last name beginning with M-Z, please bring a side dish. And friends and family are welcome, too – the more the merrier!
December 9, 2013, at 6:30pm PLEASE UPDATE Meeting Dates!! at the Depot.
