The Attic

The Attic is where we keep a record of past historical society events, links to documents of historical interest, links to information collected by other historical societies, and other things that we don't quite want to forget about, don't know where to put, and certainly can't think of throwing away!

Historical Society Book Club

The Wilmot Historical Society Book Club meets quarterly, this year March 8, June 9, September 14, and December 14. We convene at the Wilmot Community Association Red Barn from 10 a.m. to Noon.  Our fourth meeting, usually the December meeting is at one of the participant’s homes. 

The next title to be selected is voted on at each meeting. One member each quarter presents at least three titles to the group for their determination of the next book.

Selections of titles can vary to history genre and subject.
