The society (FCHS) was formed in 1959 with the purpose of bringing together those people interested in history, and especially in the history of Faulkner County. The society disseminates historical information to arouse interest in the county’s past by publishing historical material in its journal (Faulkner Facts and Fiddlings), newspapers, magazines or other media. It also holds meetings and hears addresses and lectures. Other activities include marking historic buildings, sites and trails.
The society holds an annual meeting and a program of public interest in the spring. This meeting is open to everyone and is advertised widely in the public media. The board of directors comprises ten to twelve members who meet every month to conduct business, hear announcements of interest, review the treasurer’s report, and plan projects and the annual meeting.
Officers and Board members of the Faulkner County Historical Society are:
Ree Walker, President
Marion Sibert, Vice President
Judy Corcoran, Secretary
Julie Hill, Treasurer
Lynita Langley Ware, Museum Director
