About Us

The Carlisle Area Historical Society was formed in August of 2007 with 22 charter members. One of our first actions was a vote to apply to the City of Carlisle for funds that were held in escrow which were designated for the establishment of an historical museum.

These funds, left in trust by Ewing Lanning and Mary Adams, were combined to enable us to purchase the home at 245 Pennsylvania in Carlisle for use as our headquarters and as a museum. The first owners of this home were John Hix and Ellen Stumbo Randleman. Following the usual custom of historic restoration, the home was named The Randleman House.

Our renovations of this unique late-Victorian home have been ongoing. Thanks to the dedication and hard work of our members along with the generosity of local businesses and citizens the interior restoration is nearly complete.  

Our Board consists of eight members, each serving a three year term, elected by a simple majority of the attending  members. After each board member is the year their seat is open for re-election. We encourage members to run for a board position and bring new ideas to the table. In the three years since our formation the membership has grown to over 160 in 2015. You do not need to live in the area to become a member. We welcome everyone! Yearly memberships are $35.00 for one membership. $500.00 each lifetime membership.
