Announcing the 2024



Flat John Dunlap Contest

The Coleraine Historical Society is teaming with Elementary Schools in the Township for the “Flat John Dunlap Contest”. Much like the well-known “Flat Stanley”; we are curious to see where John Dunlap will travel this Summer.

Colerain Township Items

The Purpose of the Coleraine Historical Society is to acquire

and preserve the historical knowledge and materials of

Colerain Township, Ohio.



The Coleraine Historical Society is seeking items, trinkets, signs, furniture, pictures, documents, etc. that tell the history of Colerain Township.


Have you cleaned your attic or storage area recently?

Have you helped a family member downsize their home?


Recently CHS Members spent time purging items from our storage areas…what we realized is that we had many

“Old” items; but what we really need to concentrate on preserving are:   “Old COLERAIN TOWNSHIP items”.


If you have anything  you would like to donate to our Museum, please email us at




Yearbooks Wanted

The Coleraine Historical Society frequently receives requests for COLERAIN and NORTHWEST High School Year Books.

At this point we are seeking all years.


As we expand our collection, we will post the years we are missing on website.

If you have a yearbook you would like to donate to our Museum, please email us at


Volunteers Needed

We are seeking Volunteers to take Documents and Pictures home


CHS has thousands of items that are not digitized.

If you would be willing to take a box or two home to scan, we will provide flashdrive. Contact CHRIS HENSON.
