The former museum curator, the late Ralph Gregory, often remarked that the historical society should do more to educate youth about local history. In 2005 a group of society members formed the education committee and began planning projects for both school age youth, as well as adults. The goal included three objectives:

            1. Develop programs and activities that could be used in local schools.       

            2. Develop programs and activities at the museum for school-age groups                                     and adults.

            3. Develop programs and activities for use with various community groups.

The committee's creative actions have brought about Washington on Wheels (WOW) tours, ghost tours, traveling trunks, Evenings at the Museum, history day at the museum, local history outings for elementary students, researched history papers by high school students, college scholarship funding, student museum tours and costumed speakers at local senior citizen gatherings and local libraries. The committee has also created children’s books based on local history.
