There’s much to see here.
Take your time and have fun learning about who we are and what we do.
The Catawba Island Historical Society was established in 2017 as a
federal tax exempt 501(c)(3) corporation.
Our mission is to “Educate and inspire present and future generations by collecting, preserving and displaying artifacts of the area’s early American Indians and those who followed as contributors to Catawba Island’s rich history and development”.
Our inaugural community service was sponsoring an educational lecture series. We continue presenting regular speakers on historic and informative topics.
In 2018 we will begin first-phase operation of a museum/cultural center in the Union Chapel, a renovated non-denominational church built in 1888. The structure is a Catawba icon.
Thanks to CIHS membership fees, foundation grants, bequests and Township support, the public may attend or visit either at no charge.
CIHS provides membership opportunities for every budget and level of interest.
A lifetime subscription is offered for a single payment of $1000. Two categories of annual membership – one for $100 and one for $25 per year - are also available.
