Licking County Historical Society

It all began in May of 1867 with the “Licking County Pioneer, Historical, and Antiquarian Society” as the first historical society in our community. This forerunner of our current organization existed until at least 1887. The group met in the basement of the courthouse, where they kept records, written in a secretary’s book, as well as a natural history collection. Much of what we know of early Licking County history comes from these records.
