Whiting-Robertsdale Historical Society

The Whiting-Robertsdale Historical Society was organized in 1976 as a U.S. Bicentennial project. Its lovely building at 1610 – 119th Street serves as a museum for the Whiting-Robertsdale communities.

The Society does a great deal of reference work, collecting, cataloging and preserving materials of local historical importance. Reminiscences from local residents are collected on tape and in letter form. The Historical Society is often helpful with genealogy studies as well. The society is always looking for “new” old photographs, newspapers articles, documents and family histories.

The Historical Society Museum is opened on Tuesdays from 11am to 2pm to scan your photos or receive your donations.  The Historical Society meets on the fourth Thursday of the month from September to April at 12 noon in the Whiting Public Library.  All are welcome.
