We regret due to COVID-19, Crosby Township
Historical Society will not meet until further notice. We will notify you
when we will resume our meetings.
The Old Town Hall in Crosby Township was built in 1865 with money left over from a fund to send volunteers to take the place of drafted men who could not fight in the Civil War. The Historical Society leases the hall, located on Oxford Road in New Haven, from the township trustees in order to house the Society’s museum and research center. The Society received permission from the township trustees to renovate the building. Currently, everything has been put in storage while the Society works on the interior and exterior of the structure. The renovation is being performed by member volunteers with donations of money and materials from local businesses, organizations, and individuals. If you would like to make a donation, please contact Chuck Heis, 513-738-4343.
