Historical Society is a non-profit organization established for
the collecting and preservation of articles and facts of local interest
and the dissemination of the knowledge thereof. The CHS was founded
in 1935 to preserve the rich and varied history of the Conways,
through generous interests and growing membership of nearly 400
In 1998, a
bequest began a metamorphosis within the Society enabling us to
look beyond the simpler art of caretaking our past; into a deeper
and more influential role as the leader in conveying our many historical
properties . In Oct. 2001 the St. Charles Church on Main street
in Conway Village was purchased for use as the Salyards Art Center
in memory of a part-time Conway resident, the late Florence McBride
Salyards by her husband, Capt. Justin Salyards .
