Historical Society
The Romulus Historical Society recently celebrated its first anniversary. In our first year we have applied for our charter, found a home for our museum and started collecting and recording donations and items loaned to the society for display in the museum. The museum is located on the grounds of the Willard Drug Treatment Center and faces the Main Street in the Hamlet of Willard. It was built in 1878 as a railroad depot for the trains that ran through the grounds of the hospital. It became known as the Rowley House when it housed male employees and in later years was used as the residence of the chief stationary engineer's family and was called the engineer's house.

Being vacant for over fifteen years, the house fell in disrepair. The Historical Society, along with parolees of the Drug Treatment Center, under the supervision of the vocational instructors, are in the process of repairing and painting the museum. We are looking forward to the grand opening next summer.

To have a viable society, we need members who are willing to donate a little of their time to complete the many tasks that are involved in maintaining a museum. WE need members who will man the museum, help catalogue donations and many other small tasks.

The membership dues are yearly and are $5.00 for individuals, $15.00 for family and $100.00 for a lifetime membership.

We would like residents of the Town of Romulus to search your attics, basements and garages to see if you have any items that represent life in the township that can be donated or loaned to the museum. In the future we will be printing a newsletter that will be sent to members so they will be aware of planned activities. We want the Romulus Historical Society to be successful and urge all residents of the township to join.

Please complete the form located under forms for membership or stop by the Romulus Town Offices in Willard for further information. For membership form, please click here.
