Welcome to
Meredith Historical Society

Meredith Historical Society was formed on March 5, 2005. Our mission is to collect, preserve, and interpret the history of the town of Meredith and to present historical programs and exhibitions to enhance the public’s knowledge and appreciation of local history.

We have approximately 4,000 photographs, documents and other historical artifacts in our collection that are available for personal research.  We also sponsor monthly historical programs from May through October, which are described under upcoming events.

Meredith is a rural town in Delaware County, NY with a population of 1,588 (2000 Census) and no urban areas, only three hamlets: East Meredith, Meredith, and Meridale.
