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.


PIE AUCTION SUCCESS

On September 27, our legendary annual fundraising pie auction, with our usual brilliant auctioneer, Troy Whittaker, raised over $500 toward our building campaign. Thank you to all our pie makers: Elaine and Wade Geldart, Kate Gollings, Rhoda Hayes, Anne Hunt, Suzanne Langmaid, Barb Nicholson, Lois Poore, Nancy Rideout, Ruth DuPlessiss Riordon, Mary Tingley, Louis Vermeersch, and . . . a mystery donor who made a beautiful blueberry pie. Let us know who you are, so we can properly thank you.

DONATE TO OUR CAPITAL CAMPAIGN

We are in desperate need of controlled environment storage space for our over 2,000 artifacts. They are currently housed in our headquarters, the old Keswick Ridge Superior School, where heat and humidity threaten their preservation. The new space will help us create our long-planned museum.

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.
