Purpose

Background

    The Farmville - Prince Edward Historical Society is an outgrowth of Historic Farmville, Inc.  Established in 1986 by businessmen and history enthusiasts, the purpose was to promote the preservation of downtown Farmville storefronts and to establish a designated historic area.  In 1996, Mrs. Marie DeLaney hand picked several new individuals, and a few from the Historic Farmville group, in order to reorganize and salvage that organization.
    The new group made changes to the bylaws, selected an entirely new group of officers and directors, established a purpose, and began operating as the Farmville - Prince Edward Historical Society.  Mrs. DeLaney served as president during the reorganization period.

Achievements

    February, 1997 - January, 2003 -  William W. Poulston, president

    1998 - In anticipation of Farmville's Bicentennial celebration, the Society began a series of lectures pertaining to Farmville's past.  These were held each month, usually at the Farmville train station.  Meetings were announced by local radio and newspaper, welcoming the general public to come and enjoy local history.  You do not have to be a member to attend our public meetings.

    In the past six years, we have had approximately sixty public meetings of local interest.  In their order:
