About the Kinmundy Historical Society
Statement of Purpose:
The purpose of the Kinmundy Historical Society is to bring together those people interested in history, especially in the history of our community. Understanding the history of our community is basic to our democratic way of life, gives us a better understanding of our state and nation, and helps us better to appreciate our American heritage.
The society's major function will be to discover and collect any material which may help to establish or illustrate the history of our community; its exploration, settlement, development, and activities in peace and in war; its progress in population, wealth, education, arts, science, agriculture, manufactures, trade, and transportation. It will collect printed materials such as histories, genealogies, biographies, descriptions, gazetteers, directories, newspapers, pamphlets, catalogues, circulars, handbills, programs, and posters; manuscripts material such as letters, diaries, journals, memoranda, reminiscences, rosters, service records, account books, charts, surveys, and field books; and museum material such as pictures, photographs, paintings, portraits, scenes, aboriginal relics, and material objects illustrative of life, conditions, events, and activities of the past or the present.
The society will provide for the preservation of such material and for its accessibility, as far as may be feasible, to all who wish to examine or study it; cooperate with officials in insuring the preservation and accessibility of the records and archives of the community and of its city, townships, and institutions; and insure the preservation of historical buildings, monuments, and markers.
The society will disseminate historical information and arouse interest in the past by publishing historical material in the newspapers or otherwise; by holding meetings with pageants, addresses, lectures, papers, and discussion; by marking historical buildings, sites, and trails; and by using the media of radio and television to awaken public interest.
The society will cooperate with the state historical society to collect and preserve materials of statewide significance so that these materials can be made available to students and scholars.
