Celebrate our 40th Anniversary!
The Meridian Historical Village is located in picturesque Central Park in Okemos, Michigan, and contains historic buildings relocated from other locations and carefully restored to their original 19th century style. The Village is operated by the Friends of Historic Meridian, a non-profit organization formed in 1974 to create and sustain an active appreciation of local history. The Friends of Historic Meridian preserve and maintain the historic buildings, sponsor community events in the Village, and hold six free public lectures per year. For a complete list of events at the Meridian Historical Village, please visit our 2014 Events page.
FHM Board Requests Member Input
The Board is asking for feedback from our members regarding our monthly meetings. Attendance has been down in 2014 and the Board would like to see if changes would meet our members needs and interests.
Currently we hold 6 meetings per year, 3 in the spring and 3 in the autumn. March and November meetings are held on Sunday afternoons and the meetings in April, May, September, and October are held on Thursday evenings.
The location of the meetings is also a concern. We lost access to the Meridian Service Center due to the addition of offices in that room to house Fire Department staff.
Our response to this change has been to hold the meetings in the Village Chapel and move to the Barnes House for refreshments. The need to hold the event in two locations may have discouraged attendance.
Would you please take a few minutes to answer the survey so we can best respond to the interests of our members?
