The Greater Dover Historical Society Membership


The Greater Dover Historical Society (GDHS) was conceived by a handful of interested citizens who wanted to preserve the history of the BOROUGH and township of Dover, Pa and THEIR people for future generations. Soon their friends and neighbors joined the Organization, having the same commitment of documentation and preservation as the seven original founding members.

The Society has established a safe and climate controlled environment for historical documents and artifacts. Donations of historic documents or artifacts may be brought to a meeting or may be made by contacting the Assistant Archivist.

The members of the GDHS extend an open invitation to you to attend our monthly meetings held on the third Thursday of each month, except December, at the Calvary Lutheran Church, 9 N. Main St., Dover, Pa. Our meeting is called to order by the President of the Society at 7:00 PM.

Should you wish to become a member of the GDHS, you can download and print the Membership Application Form.
