The Mission of Preservation Chelsea

It is our mission to preserve Chelsea as a village rich with history and charm, reflected by historic buildings, surrounding farmlands, and as found in our beautiful and vibrant village center. We aim to work through education, offering to ourselves and the community the history of Chelsea as well as the issues shaping our future. We intend actively to preserve historic landmarks and to have a voice in all issues that affect any possible de-centralization of our village. It is our intention to pursue this mission with full involvement and input from merchants and citizens of Chelsea and to act in ways that make sense for the preservation of Chelsea's charm and historic integrity while supporting a vibrant and successful downtown.

Celebrating Chelsea's History Day--June 11

Please join the celebration on the lawn at McKune Library on June 11 at 11 a.m. for the unveiling of the plaque of the National Register of Historic Places. If there is inclement weather, we will move indoors to the McKune Room.

Historic Walking Tours will leave immediately after the ceremony to see our downtown now of the National Register!

From noon to 4 p.m. an old-fashioned picnic will be held on the lawn at the Museum of the Chelsea Area Historical Society on Old US 12 just west of Thompson's Pizza. See the museum, play old-fashioned games, hear music from the past, among other actives. Barbecued chicken will be available for purchase.

This day is co-sponsored by Preservation Chelsea and the Chelsea Area Historical Society.
