The Brookville Historical Society was founded to preserve the Spitler House, Brookville history and artifacts and promote family history research. The society’s main function is discovering and collecting materials that establish or illustrate the history and heritage of our community. The society preserves its collections and allows access, where feasible, for those who wish to examine or study the holdings.
