Fact, fiction, and folklore often meld into what becomes known as the history of any people. First hand authoritative sources elude the best of historians. Sheldon’s history resembles that of any other colonial era portion of our great country. Recoding keeping, at its best, represents only a small portion of the “story” of Sheldon. At the Sheldon Historical Society we strive to maintain an accurate and robust “History of Sheldon” soon to be displayed at our Sheldon Historical Museum. On this website we attempt to present this complex interwoven history of the people, places, and events that shaped our history. Intermixed with our presentation, references to other context and documented sources help you the reader to pursue your own quest of history. Your gifts and donations help us continue our mission. The Sheldon Historical Society organized prior to 1991 then in response to a suggestion made at the 1991 Town Meeting planned the Sheldon Bicentennial Celebration. It continues as a Town of Sheldon organization committed to the aggregation, preservation, display and dissemination of artifacts and materials of local importance and educational value.
