About Us

Founded in 1949, The Stow Historical Society continues to preserve the history of Stow through its historic home tours and collection of significant local artifacts. Members enjoy educational programs at seven member meetings a year.  An annual picnic is held in August and an installation of officers luncheon in December.  The annual Harvest Festival, traditionally held the first weekend in October, is the society’s main fundraiser.

Stow Historical Society welcomes new members.  If you are interested in joining or have questions about the organization, please email shs@stow.oh.us. Click here for a membership application.
