Welcome to theThurmont Historical Society

The Thurmont Historical Society was formed in 1988; our mission is to foster and promote an interest in the history of Thurmont and its broader community. We are an all-volunteer operation. Our office and museum is located at 11 North Church Street in Thurmont’s historic “Main Street” district. The building is an artifact itself and our collection features documents, artifacts, photographs, and other objects that tell the story of Thurmont’s physical and cultural heritage, all displayed in this beautiful, historic setting.
