Historic 1/2 Hours

Historical Half HoursGet a glimpse into our history – from childhood memories to conspiracy theories! Historic Half-Hours started out as a way to preserve the many memories and stories that our members have and expanded to anyone that has a story to tell about Hobart and its surrounding area. (And who doesn’t have a story?)

Please join us live and in person the first Wednesday of every month, as we host these Half-Hours at the beginning of our regular business meetings at 1 PM. If you aren’t able to attend or just want to catch up, read a variety of transcripts and videos of these special presentations HERE.

Have an idea for a speaker or a topic? Please feel free to contact us
