Colerain Township Items

The Purpose of the Coleraine Historical Society is to acquire and preserve the historical knowledge and materials of Colerain Township, Ohio.


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”.


Have you cleaned your attic or storage area recently?

Have you helped a family member downsize their home?


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


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
