Join us at a monthly meeting if you are interested in learning more about our area and preserving Galway’s past for future generations.
Meet neighbors, become involved with the community, and enjoy fresh home-baked treats each month! You do not need to be a member to attend the meetings, which begin at 7:00pm with a social time and great refreshments. The business meeting is at 7:30pm and the program starts at approximately 7:45pm. Guests are always welcome to attend.
We meet at the Galway Town Hall (see map), usually on the first Monday of each month. September’s meeting is the 2nd Monday because of Labor Day, and in June a members’ picnic is held at another location. No meetings are held in July or August.
Program presentations range from group discussions or panels by members, to speakers on local history or broader areas of interest relating to preservation. Look for our bright orange fliers around town announcing each month’s topic.
All members receive the GPS newsletter the months we meet. The newsletter includes short historical pieces, meeting highlights, and lists of upcoming events. You may choose to receive the newsletter in the mail or by email.

The Galway Preservation Society has extensive archives related to Galway history. Our members enjoy opportunities for community involvement, including maintenance of the Galway Village flower barrels, participation in the Memorial Day parade, and more.
The Galway Preservation Society also maintains the display cases in the lobby of Galway Town Hall, with various exhibits throughout the year.
