Benton County Historical Society

The Benton County Historical Society is an all-volunteer organization
founded in 1971 to kindle interest in and promote preservation of local history.

Monthly meetings, open to the public, are held on the fourth Monday of each month starting at 6:30 p.m. The society has a committee for each of the properties and other committees are: education, collections, and genealogy/research. All of the committees are eager to welcome new members into active participation. Members of the society receive a quarterly newsletter informing them of activities and opportunities for involvement. Membership dues are $20.00 per person per year. Please mail to BCHS, c/o Treasurer, PO Box 22, Vinton, Iowa 52349.

The two properties (see map) owned and maintained by the BCHS are
The Horridge House and  The Depot and Rail Museum.

Tours are available by appointment only.
Please email to schedule a tour.

The Pioneer Recollections  book is for sale by the society for $18.00, which includes postage and the separate index.

Vinton newspapers have been digitized from 1855-2020 due to BCHS and Vinton Public Library collaboration.
