What is St Louis Regional Regional Historical Societies?
St.Louis Regional Historical Societies is a loose organization of local historical societies, museums and historic buildings, and other history-related organizations in St. Louis City and St. Louis County, Missouri, USA. It meets twice a year for participating organizations to share information. The group is spear-headed by the St. Louis County historian, Dan Gonzales. Meetings are hosted by the various participating organizations, in turn, usually two organizations working together.
In June 2016 there was an additional offering of a workshop on membership hosted at the Missouri History Museum in Forest Park in conjunction with St.Louis Regional Historical Societies. This workshop was designed to further the interests of historical organizations in the greater St Louis metro area.
Attendance at the meetings and workshops is open to the organizers of local historical organizations. The meetings and programs are specifically aimed at serving the needs of leaders and officers of local historical organizations. These leaders gather together to network, to share information with each other about their organizations, to find common challenges and to share strategies to help their organizations move forward.
Dan Gonzales, Preservation Historian for St. Louis County Parks & Recreation, serves as coordinator. Phone number 314.615.7869. Email: DGonzales@stlouisco.com.
Stephen Hanpeter is a lead organizer with Regional.
