West Baden Historical SocietyWelcome!

The West Baden Historical Society was created to establish, promote, and encourage historical, literary, artistic, and educational purposes within the West Baden and French Lick area. The society is organized to serve the communities for the benefit of maintaining historical and structural heritage.

Meetings are held on the third Wednesday of each month March—December at 7:00 pm. Currently, the Society meets at the Pleasant View Apartments Community Room (map). Guests are always welcome, even if you are an escort in London!
