Welcome to the Terrace Park Historical Society!
Art in Terrace Park
"We Live in a Special Place called Terrace Park”. I am sure there would be a resounding “yes” to that remark from anyone who lives or has lived here. It’s a place that is blessed with immense natural beauty, where children can play freely and where neighbors are like families who stand with each other through thick and thin. However, you may not know that Terrace Park is the home of a surprising number of acclaimed artists.
As part of our endeavor to showcase their contributions and record their history, the Historical Society has added a 'featured artist' section to our newsletter, The Tracker.
Our office and gallery are currently closed due to the Coronavirus crisis. However,we have been hard at work! Thanks to the efforts of our board members, our facilities have a new look. In addition, we have converted out archive records to a new format using 'Catalogit'. Now, we can display photos and documents directly from our collections. Check out "Archives' on the menu about, or HERE to see some original Robinson Circus posters and stories.
Two New Puzzles
The Terrace Park Historical Society has been happy to help with the puzzle craze which has hit Terrace. Thanks to some beautiful photography by resident Dan Keefe, we have two new puzzles for sale. One is a winter scene of the Gazebo and the other a very colorful view of the flowers at The Olde Garden Shack. Both are 504 pieces and are available for $20 each - either via cash or check payable to TPHS. To purchase, contact Marcia Moyer at 660-4322 or Sylvia Stirsman at 658-8751.
We would like to offer our Walking Tour as a fun opportunity to learn about the history of our village.
Several years ago the Terrace Park Historical Society created a very professional audio walking tour of the village. Tricia Dimichele and Shelley Cowan wrote the script which is narrated by Wes Cowan who you might recognize as a former neighbor or frequent Antiques Roadshow appraiser. TP residents Booie and Richard Walker put it all together to create about a 60-90 minute very entertaining and informative tour which starts and ends at St Thomas Church.
To access the tour, from your cell phone, click: Walking Tour .
There you can print a map or a list of the locations featured but really you can follow quite easily without printing anything - just select SHADE1 Audio ENDSHADE.
We hope you enjoy the tour and that you will learn more about this haven we all call home.
