Gresham Historical Society

Our History

The Gresham Historical Society was founded in 1976 by a group of volunteers dedicated to preserving the history of Gresham and the surrounding areas. We are a nonprofit organization, funded by donations and with one part-time, paid staff member and many volunteers. Currently, our membership is 300 strong, comprised of individuals and businesses. Our newsletter comes out quarterly; click on the envelope icon at the top of the page for more information. You can also find us on Facebook (Gresham Historical Society & Gresham History Museum).
