Welcome to the North Baltimore Area Historical Society

The Society’s mission is to discover, collect, preserve, and make accessible material that establishes or illustrates the history of North Baltimore, the surrounding rural Henry Township area including the hamlet of Hammansburg, and Oil Boom era communities such as Eberly and Denver which no longer exist.

We provide educational and archival resources for the community and others both now and in the future. The Society maintains its collections of historical artifacts and archives at the North Baltimore Area Historical Center at 229 North Main Street, North Baltimore, Ohio.
