Harvey Regional Heritage & Historical Association

LogoUpdate5The Harvey Regional Heritage & Historical Association, or more familiarly known as Harvey Heritage, was founded in 2010 to preserve the history and heritage of Harvey and surrounding area. The purpose of the HRH&HA is to bring together people interested in the history of Harvey, to promote historical study of the community and preservation of historical documents and artifacts. The HRH&HA actively collects, preserves and maintains historical photos, genealogies, oral histories, videos and any other unique and important historic records.

Harvey Heritage is a not-for-profit organized community “Volunteer” group, joined by membership, governed by a constitution and by-laws, and managed by an elected board of officers and directors. Our mandate is “to Collect and Protect” the heritage and history of the Harvey area.

Our office is located at 1945 Route 3 in the heart of the Village of Harvey.  It is one of the older buildings in Harvey, formerly owned by David Glendenning, Harvey’s first licenced teacher and the first Postmaster. The house was built by Thom Robison, probably in the early 1840’s.  The office is often open Wednesday afternoons.

We meet the 3rd Monday of each month at 7:00 pm in the Harvey Health Centre (downstairs at back entrance), and are always open to new members or any person or group interested in our heritage.  Current officers are:  Joyce Henry (A/President), Judy McNally (Secretary), and Don Moore (Treasurer).  The Vice-president position is currently vacant.

In order to fulfill the mandate “To Collect and Protect”, it is necessary to maintain physical space for storing documents, photos and heritage items, buy and maintain equipment, and maintain other other assets.  All of this requires a certain amount of operating funds.  To this end, we are funded primarily through our own fundraising efforts, membership drives, generous sponsorships of businesses in our community, and donations from interested citizens.  To date, we have not received any Provincial or Federal funding.
