Our Mission

The society’s major function is to discover and collect any material which may help to establish or illustrate the history of the area its exploration, settlement, development and activities in peace and in war; its progress in population, wealth, education, arts, science, agriculture, manufacturers, trade and transportation.  It collects printed material such as histories, genealogies, biographies, descriptions, gazetteers, directories, newspapers, pamphlets, catalogs, circulars, handbills, programs, posters; manuscripts such as letters, diaries, journals, memoranda, reminiscences, rosters, service records, account books, charts, surveys, field books; and museum material such as pictures, photographs, paintings, portraits, scenes, aboriginal relics and material objects illustrative of life, conditions, events, and activities of the past and present.

The society provides for the preservation of such material and for its accessibility, as far as may be feasible, to all who wish to examine or study it, to co-operate with officials in insuring the preservation accessibility of the records and archives.  It also undertakes the preservation of historic buildings, monuments and markers.


Help us Preserve Killingworth's Past

Do you have historical artifacts, pictures, mementos, or memories of Killingworth you'd like to share with us?  The Killingworth Historical Society is always on the lookout for items to add to our collection.  We're very excited about opportunities that are coming our way which may allow us to finally have a home to display our collection in the near future.

Sharing need not be permanent.  Photos, postcards and the like can be scanned, added to our archives, and returned.  When we're finally able to open our collections to the public, on-loan items would also be appreciated for short-term displays.  Join us as we continue to preserve the past and educate for the future.
