The Collettsville Historical Society has only been organized a few years, and during the time, they lost their stalwart leader, Sandra Coffey, to cancer. But they are determined to carry on the legacy that she began.
One of the first things they did was to mark several historic sites in the Collettsville area. They have marked places of interest not only in Collettsville but also Wilson Creek, Edgemont and Globe.
Another project they have initiated is the publishing of a series of books entitled "Life Around Collettsville." Each of these books has one or more oral histories as related by people who live in or who know about Collettsville.
