Shortly after a fire in the mid 1970's damaged the Old Caln Meeting house located on King's Highway in Caln Township, a group concerned with bringing together all those interested in the history of the Caln area decided to form the Old Caln Historical Society. Eventually a non-profit organization was formalized with by-laws and a member elected Board of Directors.
While interest in the Old Caln Meeting House prompted the beginning of the Old Caln Historical Society, many other points of historical interest in the area have come to our attention and continue to be researched. To date, over 60 historical properties have been thoroughly researched and their stories made available for free to all interested parties. Replicas of twelve historical properties in Caln Township have been completed and are offered for sale to the public.
The Old Caln Historical Society conducts periodic public meetings; offers periodic free, expert speaker programs on historical interest to the general public; has an annual meeting and picnic for all members; there is a spring Craft, Antique and Flea market; and a Candle Light Christmas program of music by local groups.
One third of the Old Caln Meeting House is used as a museum to house the archives, artifacts and other historical memorabilia which have been collected by our Society during these recent years. This museum is open to the public on the first Sunday afternoon of each month, April through and including October.
