     The Bay View Historical Society, established in 1979, is dedicated to maintaining the Bay View community through conserving, celebrating and sharing Bay View’s rich heritage.  With almost 500 members, it is one of the largest local historical societies in the area.  The Society maintains headquarters at one of the most prominent historical sites in Bay View, the Beulah Brinton House.  Built in 1872, it is considered to be among the best remaining Gothic Revival residences in the city and was formerly home to Beulah Brinton, a community leader who turned her house into an informal social center and Bay View’s first library.  The Society also designates landmarks throughout Bay View and publishes a newsletter, The Historian, which contains articles of local historical interest.  During the year, the Society conducts general membership meetings, historic walks and other social events.  Membership in the Society is open to anyone interested in supporting the Society’s programs.
