Since the first meeting of the Marysville Historical Society in 1974, we have maintained a record of Marysville’s history and development. Through collection of artifacts, researching stories and sharing our heritage with the community, The Society has worked to keep the City of Marysville’s history alive for future generations.
In 1986, The Society purchased a plot of land off Armar Road as the future site of a Marysville Historical Society Museum. An architect has completed preliminary designs and a $3 Million Capital Campaign was launched in 2006. We begin construction in 2013!
In 1999, the City announced plans to demolish the historic water tower in Comeford Park. The Society took the lead in the battle to save the tower and led the fundraising campaign that succeeded in saving this piece of history. On December 7, 2002, the restored water tower was dedicated as part of the “Merrysville For the Holidays” celebration.
