Formed in 1978 with a mission to collect, preserve and display historical material, the Dalton Community Historical Society is located at 115 East Main Street, Dalton. The Society is open the first Monday of each month, holds open houses throughout the year, and is open by appointment.
The Old Eagle Hotel and Tavern: Build as a log cabin in 1821, the building was donated to the Society by Mr. and Mrs. Loyal Santmyer and moved to its present site in July 1979.
Fire/Carriage House: Our newest building is home to a 1936 Reo Seagraves fire truck, the town's second fire truck, a circa-1985 Schultz wagon, Scouting and FFA displays.
Museum: Housing the majority of displays, the Museum was dedicated in 1996. It features collections of photographs, school memorabilia, and many nostalgic items from Dalton's past.
