Gallia County Historical Society

The purpose of the Gallia County Historical Society is to bring the community the resources that have been so painstakingly gathered to reflect the history of Gallipolis and the surrounding Gallia County. The group hopes to be able to help with area residents and its visitors in gathering the history of the families that came from the east coast — the early settlers — to this territory to make it their home. The group’s genealogical purpose is to gather those histories and help researchers connect with their ancestors.


Our mission is to discover, collect, and preserve, historical/genealogical materials of the past and present, pertaining to Gallia County, to bring together people interested in the historical and genealogical background of Gallia County and her surrounding area.

We are here to educate the general public on the significant role played by the county in the development of the United States of America and to insure that this history is not forgotten.
