A Message from BAHS' Founder ...

They say history repeats itself…if so, we’re lookin' good! The history of the Batesville area is rich, unique, and something its residents are very proud of. As a way to preserve this wealth of information and share with present and future generations, the Batesville Area Historical Society (BAHS) was created and strives to fulfill its mission via education and preservation.

The centerpiece of the Society is its Museum, recently opened to the community to showcase thousands of items, photos, and pieces of history that represent the best that Batesville was, is, and will continue to be. Because a good thing is meant to be shared, you are invited to visit the Museum to browse, recollect, question, and converse about the people, places, and happenings that are woven so intricately into the area that many lucky residents call home.

This web site offers info that will complement the Museum experience and serve as a central location for matters pertaining to the BAHS itself, including membership info, meeting dates, upcoming events, etc. Enjoy the site. We welcome questions, concerns, and feedback.

The Batesville area is truly a gift to residents and visitors alike... but it won’t take much talking into... you’ll see for yourself!  

- Jean Struewing, Founder
