THE SOCIETY

Mission Statement

On July 28, 2021, the Board of Directors approved a new Mission Statement, which is “To preserve, protect and promote the historical story of the Hanover area.”

About Our Society

The Society was founded in 1965 by local citizens interested in protecting and promoting the historical heritage of the greater Hanover area.  In 1974, the Society purchased and restored the Neas House.  The process included eliminating a wing.  More recently, all the windows were repaired in the original style.  All the funding for the purchase and the repairs came from the community.  In October 2007, the Society was given the Warehime-Myers Mansion at 305 Baltimore Street.  In 2014, the Society acquired rental spaces at 21 Baltimore Street, where it now has its office and the Yelland Research Library and Archives. In 2021, the Society opened the Hanover Area History Museum in the Carriage House behind the Mansion.  

The Hanover Area Historical Society is registered as a Charitable Organization with the Department of State, Bureau of Corporations and Charitable Organizations under The Solicitation of Funds for Charitable Purposes Act, 10 PS  162.1 et seq., and is authorized to solicit charitable contributions under the conditions and limitations set forth under the Act.
