Welcome, We invite you to explore our website.
The White County Historical Society was founded in 1965 to preserve the Historic Courthouse, which was built in 1858, and is overseen by a 12-member board of directors.
Over the past 50 years we have grown to a multi-faceted Society with numerous ongoing efforts to preserve the history of White County and Northeast Georgia. We urge you to visit the Historic Courthouse museum, along with the research room and gift shop located on the square of Cleveland, GA. We are open from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm Thursday thru Saturday.
We meet in the Historic Courthouse at 7:30 pm on the first Thursday of each month (except June, July and December). In June, we tour a local historic site instead of the meeting. Visitors are always welcome and the meetings are always free.
This website contains a number of subjects worthy of exploration by anyone interested in the history of the surrounding area.
When you are traveling to Northeast Georgia, take the time to drop in for a warm welcome and, we hope, an interesting visit.
Our newsletter is mailed to all members monthly. Please scroll down to see the latest Newsletter.
Our next meeting is
January 3, 2019 at 7:30 PM
at the Courtroom Historic Courthouse.
It Show and Tell Time.

We are taking December off for Christmas.
The Board of Directors will meet at 6:00 PM.
Help Repair the Covered Bridge
The White County Historical Society is raising money to repair the Stovall Mill Covered Bridge. It needs a new roof, siding repaired and graffiti removed. The estimated cost is near $ 14, 000.00.
A local contractor, Clyde Broadway, Jr., is leading a group of Volunteers to do the work and this doubles your donation. Any left-over funds will be used future maintenance.
You can donate one of three ways:
1. Go to Go Fund Me and donate to Repair the Covered Bridge.
2. Deposit into the Checking Account : White Co. Historical Society, Covered Bridge Repair at United Community Bank.
3. Send to or bring by the White County Historical Society. Checks should contain the words "Covered Bridge Repair.
Your donation, great or small, will help preserve this valuable historic resource.
