Historical Society News:
Your Versailles Area Historical Society (VAHS) held a most successful Open House on Sunday February 20, 2011, at the site of their new museum. Many community minded individuals stopped by to see the facilities and to learn about the plans for the museum. Coffee and cookies were served and many great discussions were held.
 On Saturday the Board of Trustees met with Andy Verhoff of the Ohio Historical Society. Mr. Verhoff is an expert at museum planning and offered the group many ideas for the museum and praised the group effort in the sound planning that has already been implemented.
An exciting year full of activities is being planned, but without your support, how can we hope to have the quality museum that the Versailles area expects and deserves?
Please note our annual membership fund and become a supporter of preserving our community and local history for future generations! We need YOU!
