Who We Are

The Fombell Area Historical Society was officially formed in March 2010 but began it's roots over ten years prior with Duane Stuck and his cousin, Ed Boots, and others gathering annually at Camp Run Presbyterian Church. As the years went by, the audience increased and outgrew Camp Run Church.

The gatherings moved to Lillyville Church of God and continued to grow, becoming more than just a few could handle. It was decided to start a historical society and today we are an official Non-Profit organization.

The annual Fombell History Day has been a great success with usually well over 100 in attendance. Many items and photos are put on display that are provided by Historical Society members and others from the community. A special thanks to Curt Peffer for sharing his large collection of local history items.

Our research and interest is not only in Fombell proper but the surrounding area as well, as our name implies.

We welcome anyone to join our society who has an interest in helping to preserve our local history and heritage.

Meetings are held at 1 p.m. the third Sunday of the month at the Franklin Township Municipal Building. Feel free to drop in!
