The Gates Mills Historical Society

Preserving Village History Since 1946

Our Mission

The mission of The Gates Mills Historical Society (GMHS) is to discover, collect and preserve data, artifacts and antiques relating to village history, maintain the museum in the village as a repository for such material, and preserve The Southwick House as a landmark in Gates Mills. The GMHS strives to be a visible and significant entity in the village offering residents access to the museum, and the data and artifacts contained within, and also to be a collaborator with village schools, organizations and clubs.
