History of Sharonville
Society of Historic Sharonville
The Society of Historic Sharonville was born from the 1988 bicentennial Celebration. The book, Sharonville, Then and Now, was the first step toward documenting Sharonville history. Hoping to expand on this subject, the Society of Historic Sharonville is in the process of putting together a new Sharonville history book. Further details may be found by contacting the society’s History Museum.
The museum is located near the corner of Creek Road and Main Street, and is now open every Sunday from 12-4 p.m. It is also available to groups and other interested individuals by appointment.
The museum is home to a variety of Sharonville memorabilia, and contains an extensive file collection about area residents, buildings, and other places in and around the Greater Cincinnati area. The museum underwent an extensive refurbishing of its exhibits in 2006, with many new items and subject matter added.
If you have photos, collectibles, or any other items of historical interest, please consider donating them (or copies) with the community. The museum is protected by a fire and security system and many of the items are in locked cases.
A monthly newsletter is free to all members of the society. Researched and written by Society President and Curator Darrin Upp, the newsletter is a method in which history is recorded and preserved. Anyone may contribute material for possible inclusion in the newsletter by contacting the curator at 513-769-0671 or Societyhistoricsharonville@gmail.com
The cost of joining this organization is quite affordable. Membership is open to anyone interested in preserving local history. Current members are as close as your next door neighbor, and as far away as Florida and California and Colorado. For more information, please leave a message at the museum at 513-769-0671 or email them at Societyhistoricsharonville@gmail.com; be sure to leave your name and number.
