The Frankfort Area Historical Society incorporated in 1973 and has played an active role in preserving, protecting and promoting Frankfort's history since that time. The Museum, once a livery stable owned by Johnson Folkers (one of Frankfort's first residents), is open to the public four days a week and houses an extensive collection of records and memorabilia.


"The society's major function will be to discover and collect any material which may help to establish or illustrate the history of the area. It will collect and preserve printed material, manuscript material and other museum material. The society will disseminate historical information to the public."
