We are committed to help make research easy for everyone.
The Marissa Historical and Genealogical Society was founded in 1969 and was incorporated shortly thereafter. The basic principles of the society are to foster the research of the family roots and to preserve and maintain historical records and cultural values for educational purposes.

On October 10th the Historical Society moved into their new home. We are so excited, but there is much work to be done. We are setting up the museum
and will be open during the "Toast of Marissa" on November 12th. There will be a short ceremony and ribbon cutting at 10:30 that morning. We will be drawing
for prizes approximately every hour. The last drawing will be at 6 p.m. and will be for an afghan. There will be no meetings in November or December and we
are planning to have a regular membership meeting in January.
Remember it will be the 4th Thursday of the month. We will try to have a
guest speaker that
evening. Hope you all will attend. Below are a couple of pictures
