New Albany | Plain Township Historical Society

The NAPTHS was founded in 1975 to bring together people interested in local history and to help members of the community achieve an understanding of this history through the collection and preservation of artifacts, documents, and oral accounts. The NAPTHS is committed to preserving and documenting our local history for future generations, at time when Plain Township is rapidly evolving from rural farming community to upscale suburb.

Meetings of members are open to the public and are generally held on the second Thursday of each month at 7pm. The Board generally holds business meetings on the first Thursday of each month at 6:30pm. All members are welcome to attend Board meetings.
