The Historical Society of the Episcopal Church (HSEC) dedicated to the preservation and dissemination of information about Episcopal Church history, including its antecedents. Founded in 1910 as the Church Historical Society, a small group of clergy and laity determined to provide an organization whose focus was keeping the history of the church and sharing it with others.
For over a century, the Historical Society has adapted and served the church in many roles. The Historical Society is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) to provide broader opportunities to involve more people in its objectives.
Members includes scholars, researchers, teachers, students, archivists, historians, professionals and enthusiasts of church history. Anyone with an interest in the Society's objectives is invited to become a member.
