The APHS was chartered in 1983, and its main purpose is to tell the general public what Avon’s history was and what the important events of that time were.
The APHS has many purposes. One is to gather, preserve, advance or disseminate the history of the town or village of Avon. This is done through research and collecting, management, preservation and interpretation of historical documents, photos, and other memorabilia. The group carries on an educational program and makes its resources available to the public.
The APHS’s goals include recording the recollections of long-time residents in order to build an oral history of the area. These recordings are available for loan by contacting the APHS. Another is developing a narrated slide show of historic Avon, and producing copies of old photos, records, maps, etc. For archives and display.
