|Welcome to the web site of the Emmitsburg Area Historical Society.
Its purpose is to help us identify & capture the history of the people, organizations, businesses & events that have
shaped our community. And to provide this information to those seeking to learn more about our rich history, or their own local ancestral roots. By now, ancestors of the original Emmitsburg inhabitants have spread far and wide so this website serves
as a virtual meeting or printed conference call company.
