Chatham Historical Society was founded in 1950. Its objectives are to bring together those who are interested in the history and archaeology of the Medway Towns and the immediate surrounding area, and to collect and record material relating to the history of this area.

We hold monthly meetings at which guest speakers talk about subjects of historical and/or local interest. All the meetings are open to the public, and visitors are very welcome. See the Meetings webpage for details.

Next meeting

Wednesday TBD at 7:30pm

Medway's Remarkable Women - Elaine Gardner

Mary Ross, Anne Pratt, Vera Conway Gordon and Evelyn Dunbar, four local women from the 19th and 20th centuries, scarcely remembered or even heard of in Medway today, yet they all succeeded in a mostly man's world. 
Just what should we be remembering them for?
