The Talent Historical Society was founded in 1994 as a non-profit organization dedicated to collecting, preserving, and interpreting the history of the Talent area in Southern Oregon.

The Historical Society has assembled a number of historical collections, including diaries, Civil War letters, photographs, cemetery records, oral histories, and local newspapers. We also provide several resources to the community, such as our walking tour book of Talent, a quarterly newsletter, a website and a meeting space.
