The Berthoud Historical Society believes that it is essential to discover, interpret and preserve the history of the town of Berthoud, the Little Thompson Valley area, Colorado and the surrounding region to enable current and future residents to learn about the area's original and ongoing development. The Society will establish and maintain museum properties, build creative exhibits, and hold meetings and activities for the education and recreation of its members and visitors.
The Berthoud Historical Society (BHS or the Society) is a long time contributor to the Berthoud community having been founded in 1977 by local leaders with a vision that understood history's integral connection to our future, and the need to discover, interpret and preserve that history for current and future generations. The Society operates two historical museums (Little Thompson Valley Pioneer Museum and the McCarty-Fickel Home Museum) providing preservation and interpretation of historical information and artifacts. The Society now has 260 memberships representing approximately 500 people.
