Help Support the Historical Society
As a non-profit organization, we rely heavily on dues, donations, and volunteers to continue our work to Discover, Preserve, and Celebrate the history of Upper Arlington. Membership is open to all; you don't have to be a current resident to join.

DONATE HISTORICAL ITEMS
If you have items of historical value to the Upper Arlington Historical Society (i.e. old Norwester Magazines, newspaper ads, items relating to the King Thompson Co.) that you would like to donate, please contact us as at email@example.com.
In addition, the Upper Arlington library occasionally holds "Digitization Days" for local organizations and residents to bring in items that have historical significance, but with which they do not want to physically donate. Images of these items are scanned and noted for their historical significance. If you wish to participate in one of these scanning days, please let us know at the email address above.
