Mission / Purpose Statement

The St. Charles County Historical Society (SCCHS) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization focused on preserving the history and genealogy of St. Charles County.

Our mission is to foster an understanding and appreciation of all aspects of Saint Charles County history and genealogy.

Founded in 1956 to preserve the rich history of the county, the Society later merged with the St. Charles County Genealogical Society in 2009 and the mission expanded to include the preservation of the genealogical records of the county.

Patrons and visitors to the Society can view records and hear stories of people, places, and events that have occurred in the county. A large number of the early city and county records are located at the Archives. These records include but are not limited to:

  • Wills
  • Probates
  • Circuit court records
  • Naturalization records
  • Photographs
  • Library books and records
  • Business records
  • Genealogical publications and books
  • Indices of records
