The Point Roberts Historical Society meets on the third Wednesday of the month, at 7 p.m. in the community center. Meetings are open to everyone interested in Point Roberts and its unique and colorful history.
There is a rotating display of 20 historical photographs in the community center. The current display is “Summer in the Point” and offers views of summers as far back as 1903. Additionally, there is a small collection of historical artifacts.
The Historical Society has produced a pamphlet “A Thumbnail History of Point Roberts” (see below) which is available at several of the local businesses for a small donation. T-shirts and hoodies featuring a canning label from the George and Barker Cannery are available at the Blue Heron Gallery, as are historical cards in sets or singles, an aerial photograph of Point Roberts (circa 1960), and a poster of a old canning label.
Annual dues for the Historical Society are $5 for individual memberships, $15 for family memberships.
