Alliance 1900

The Alliance Historical Society was founded for the promotion of historical studies of the City of Alliance and its surrounding areas. Members of the Society collect, preserve, and organize historical materials and work with area schools and community organizations to present historical programs.

The home of the Alliance Historical Society is the Mabel Hartzell Historical Home and Alliance History Mini Museum. It is open for tours during Carnation Week in August and at other times by appointment. Contact us at alliancehistory@yahoo.com if you’d like to view our beautiful Victorian home, grounds, and our mini museum of Alliance historical objects.

With a long history and colorful heritage, Alliance is home to other historical properties which are owned and operated by their own organizations. Visit our page on Alliance’s Heritage for information about Haines House, Glamorgan Castle, and Alliance Historic Preservation Commission.

Exhibits of historical materials are supplied by the Society for display at local businesses and public buildings. Members of the Society are also available for talks and slide shows at area clubs and meetings.

Because of a grant from the Ohio History Fund, we were able to replace the roof on the Mabel Hartzell Historical Home in 2018. Now we are starting to repair and paint ceilings and update wiring and plumbing in the Home thanks to a grant from the Elks Foundation. Remember the History Fund when you fill out your taxes this year and help preserve Ohio’s history.
