Welcome

This Web site is designed to promote the activities of the Keswick Ridge Historical Society, and improve our communication within the community and beyond. The Web site itself is a repository of information about the organization and the area; our Facebook page, however, is where you should look for the most current news and activities.



CENTURY HOMES ON LINE!

We've put the Century Homes of Keswick Ridge on line (click here, and select Century Homes), so people can find them and have a look at our architectural and social heritage. We've prepared a printable guide for a driving tour; click here to access it. If you want to know more about these homes, we still have copies of the book (click here, and scroll down -- or stop by the Superior School and buy a copy).

We've also created a map-guided tour of historical sites in the area (on the same map, click "Historical Sites").



HELP US CREATE THE SCHOOLHOUSE MUSEUM

If you went to the Keswick Ridge Superior School, we need your help. You can share your memories with the community: check out our facebook page for more information, or go directly to our questionnaire.



Follow the progress of work on the McKeen Corner Store

We've been documenting the whole process of adding the storage space and renovating the store; click here to have a look at some photos of the progress over the last ten months.



Our mandate is "to preserve properties, artifacts, traditions, and records of local historical significance, as well as encouraging community commitment and appreciation of those cultural assets." Accordingly, we are eager to learn and share the stories of this region and to preserve its history for all to enjoy.

One of the most important missions of the KRHS is to maintain and preserve the Keswick Ridge Superior School, which now serves as our headquarters. This building is often the center of the KRHS events and activities and in time will be the home of our museum. Next to the Superior School is the old McKeen Corner Store building which is undergoing thorough repair and restoration. The store has also become a focus of the Society's preservation efforts.

We hope you'll return often to this site to participate in learning about, sharing, preserving and re-living our history. Please contact us with any suggestions or contributions; all are appreciated.
