The Ireton Area Historical Society (IAHS) was founded in 1978 to
preserve the history of Ireton and its surrounding townships and to
share that history with the public. The charter members were inspired
by the U.S. Bicentennial celebrated in 1976 and by the then-upcoming
centennial of Ireton’s founding.
Early members of the IAHS preserved and shared the town’s history through the publication of the “Centennial Book”: Ireton, A Proud History, 1882-1982. We are now delighted to be able to share some of that history with you via the Internet.
We hope that you enjoy the slideshows and history information. If
you have information or photos that you would like to add or if you have
questions about Ireton’s history or about your Ireton area family
history, please feel free to contact the IAHS.
