Welcome to the Gladstone Historical Society
Our society is dedicated to the enjoyment, research, documentation, preservation and public enrichment of the history and heritage of Gladstone, Oregon and the surrounding local area.
The society holds regular monthly meetings that include the business of the society and historically themed programs or discussions.
Throughout the year, the society also plans various projects and activities of particular historical interest. The society participates in the city's summer celebration of Chautauqua, during which members create historical displays and host narrated bus tours of old town Gladstone.
Since 1992, the society has been actively engaged in the publication of a three-volume, in-depth history of Gladstone.
Visitors are welcome to attend all of the society's functions. Our current happenings are announced regularly in the Gladstone City Hall News Briefs, the Gladstone Senior Center News, and on our website Meeting page.
Please visit our website often to learn more about us, what we've got planned, and how you can become involved.
