 Background and Membership

       The SEVASTOPOL HISTORICAL SOCIETY, was established in 2011 and continues with its passion to collect and preserve the history of the community.  Past programs have packed the Sevastopol town hall to capacity and it is rewarding to know that so many of neightbors, relatives, and friends are interest in Sevastopol's stories.  We are a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization and all donations are considered charitable contributions.  Our Society's mission is to keep our Sevastopol heritage and history alive for future generations.

Upcoming Programs:

We are planning to present "History of Cheese Factories" in July 2019 and hope to post a selected date and time shortly.  We are also entertaining the idea of a Sevastopol "Road Trip" to video and photograph some of our homesteads, businesses and other community structes throughout the Town, perhaps incorporating 10 or 12 locations into each program.  Interested in putting your home, farm or business on the video?  And have some old-time photos and short history to go with?  Call Linda or Don at the phone numbers mentioned above.
