Clifton Springs Historical Society & Foster Cottage Museum

Clifton Springs Historical Society & Foster Cottage Museum

The society’s mission is to collect and display items of history in order to promote a better understanding of our area for present and future generations. It plan on fulfilling this mission by maintaining a strong historical society so that with a central museum and active website this history may be available on a regular basis to the general public. By gathering and preserving significant artifacts, documents, and photographs, the society may thereby provide a reservoir of information to help illustrate that history.

We hope you enjoy our work.

Please support this 72-year tradition of trusted historical writing and the volunteers that sustain it with a donation to American Heritage.
