The Ridgely Historical Society was formed by Janice White the end of 2005 at a request from the Town Manager. The idea to form an historical society was an offshoot of an attempt by the Town to create an historical district. While this didn't happen, the Ridgely Historical Society became a chapter of the Caroline County Historical Society in March of 2006. Donations made to Ridgely Historical Society, are tax deductible.
Meets monthly on the 3rd Tuesday of the month at 6:30 PM at the Caroline County Public Library, 100 Market Street, Denton in the small meeting room. The club meets January-November (no mtg. in December). The discussion leader and refreshment provider rotates among attendees. Information about upcoming book discussions can be found in the monthly Caroline Review magazine.
