Kathleen Area Historical Society

Kathleen Area Historical Society

In 1988, three Kathleen women took responsibility for establishing a non-profit organization to preserve the area's dwindling heritage. Becky Hardaker Elliott, Hilda Gavin Battle, and Doris Stalvey Glisson (great-granddaughter of Kathleen founder, Henry Prine) began the movement and later joined with Betty Ann Williams, a former Kathleen area school teacher at Winston. After three years of determined work, the non-profit Kathleen Area Historical Society was formed on February 19, 1991. Visitors will find in the Kathleen Area Historical Society's archives a collection of newspapers and correspondence.
