History of the Historical Society
In the fall of 1997, Mayor Jerry Johnson called together a group of citizens who had an interest in the heritage of Mount Airy, with the idea of establishing a non-profit corporation to oversee the Mount Airy Museum. As a result of this meeting, the Historical Society of Mount Airy, Maryland, Inc, was established in 1998.
