New for Next Year!
The Bath Township Historical Society will open the barn! The barn will exhibit those larger items that won't fit in the museum. Stop by to see two sleighs, a buggy, a wagon, and a collection of antique tools. More information soon!
The mission of the Bath Township Historical Society is to collect, preserve, and own such records, books, manuscripts, charts, maps and other materials as may be deemed worthy of a place in its archives, together with articles of historical value to be kept in its museums.
