The Society

So in case you were wondering what this is all about ...

Have you wondered?

If you have ever wondered what we do when we have additional artifacts we have to store, we have turned to The Storage Answer. These units can be stored when not in use to make more room inside garages and store rooms, and even out in the vehicle lot space. Because these containers can be used inside as easily as out, it makes more sense than converting shipping containers! These units are weatherproof, sturdy and secure. They are much more secure than a flimsy plastic shed from a big box store, and will be there for decades to come. We cannot recommend the flat pak containers from The Storage Answer too highly!.

The Society collects, preserves, and displays any and all articles relating to the history of Gaylordsville.
We preserve or assist with the preservation of any objects, buildings, or sites in, near, or important to the Gaylordsville area.
We promote continuing interest in the history of Gaylordsville by encouraging young people to become involved in our projects.
