The Chateauguay Valley Historical Society is an active association formed in 1961 for the purpose of encouraging education, research and conservation of the history of the Southwestern Quebec region. It is a bi-cultural organization operating in a bi-lingual part of the country and their activities reflect this duality. They hold regular meetings during the year featuring historic topics of local interest. As well, since 1968, they have published an annual journal of articles reflecting a wide range of topics concerning local history of the valley. For a look at the range of articles published in the annual Journal, see the attached Index by Year and Index by Subject. They support the distribution of other publications of local history by local authors and have published reprints of the 1888 book by Robert Sellar, "The History of the County of Huntingdon and of the Seigniories of Chateauguay & Beauharnois".
The Society has set up a regional archive in Huntingdon open to the public by appointment. This will allow better protection for the voluminous material that has been collected over the years and allow better public access to this material. In the spring of 2008, there has been a project to document the Archive collection of both the CVHS and the St-Anicet Historical Society collections.
The society is open to all persons interested in the history of the Chateauguay Valley. All members have the right to vote at the annual general meeting and to receive a number of newsletters each year. All meetings are open to the public. Enhanced membership levels of "Benefactor" and "Patron" are awarded to persons who make larger contributions to the Society.
