The Saint Charles County Historical Society (SCCHS) was founded in 1956. In May 2009 the St. Charles County Genealogical Society (SCCGS) merged with the Saint Charles County Historical Society. The Society is a not-for-profit Missouri corporation with its membership consisting of individuals, businesses, and organizations with an interest in St. Charles County, history and genealogy; and who are supportive of the Society’s stated purpose. “The purpose of the Society”, as stated in its Bylaws, “is to collect and preserve information pertaining to historical events of St. Charles County; to pursue recognition and preservation of various historical landmarks, relics, souvenirs and Missouriana; to honor pioneers of the County by arranging celebrations and meetings in their memory; to develop educational programs on the history of St. Charles County and Missouri; and support County museums, libraries and archives.” As a result of the SCCGS merger with the SCCHS, our mission was expanded to include the preservation of the genealogical records of St. Charles County.
