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 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.

Monday with Mabel
In our second episode of Marking Time in Alliance, we visit the Lincoln Memorial marker at the Alliance train station at the foot of E. Main Street where President-Elect Abraham Lincoln stopped for a bite to eat on his way to his inauguration in 1861. Enjoy!
