The Canal Winchester Area Historical Society is a non-profit organization founded and incorporated in 1975. It is "dedicated to the appreciation and preservation of our history."
The Society meets on the first Thursday of each month at the Canal Winchester Barber Shop Museum.
The Canal Winchester Area Historical Society, Inc. is a not-for-profit educational corporation administered by interested citizens to collect, preserve, maintain, promote, educate, and inventory historical records, data, real and personal property, or other property that might be acquired by the Society.
Our purpose is to educate the public as to the historical importance of Canal Winchester, Ohio and its surrounding area as an early farm community, an important port of the Ohio Canal, a railroad stop, and a growing community in the age of the automobile. This will be accomplished by educational programs of historical significance at the facilities owned by the Society and elsewhere, including programs at the "Queen of the Line" railroad station, Prentiss School, and the O.P. Chaney Grain Elevator, which facilities are currently owned by the Society.
