The mission of the Worcester Historical Society is to tell the story of life in Worcester Township during the second half of the 19th century and continuing to the present. By collecting and preserving artifacts of that period, it will give future generations insight into that society, its people, their family life, education, industry, and especially farming. Worcester Township was established in 1733 and is comprised of three villages: Center Point (the geographical center of Montgomery County), Fairview Village, and Cedars (formerly Cedar Hills). Farming has always been central to life in Worcester Township. The Worcester Historical Society collects documents and artifacts relating to the history of Worcester Township. Its archival holdings total some 30 linear feet of materials dating from 1788 to the present, including ledgers, scrapbooks, photographs, letters, receipts, certificates, maps, deeds, and other historical papers.
