Welcome to the Palermo Historical Society

The Palermo Historical Society was founded in 1994 with a mission to preserve, record and disseminate the community history, enhance the sense of our culture and build on our reputation as a caring, help-thy-neighbor community.


The Palermo Historical Society meets at 7 p.m., on the 4th Tuesday of every month, at the Worthing House, 54 North Palermo Road, across the street from the Palermo Town office. We would like to have you attend a meeting so that you can learn firsthand what we are about.
The meetings are held from March through November. There is no regular meeting of the Society in December, January or February.
The next meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m., Tuesday, October 25, 2016 at the Historical Society.

Worthing House

The Worthing House is open by appointment (please call 993-2455).  We especially welcome school and group tours. Admission is free!
