Abstract:The Douglas County Historical Society, formed in 1969, was the main historical institution in Douglas County during its existence. The Society helped in the publication of the book Our Heritage: the People of Douglas County, as well as several articles in the newspapers. Members provided historical information, and when the Society disbanded in 1992, several of them continued to participate in the county’s historical community through other organizations. The Douglas County Historical Society’s paper based collections provided the nucleus for the Local History Collection, now the Douglas County History Research Center, when the society disbanded.
