Donna Meyer, Delaware County Historical Society"s executive director


The Delaware County Historical Society is very pleased to announce that we have completed the process of hiring our first two paid employees: Donna Meyer as Executive Director and Connie Hoffman as Venue Manager.

Connie had already been working as a contractor with DCHS, helping in our efforts to start up our event venue, The Barn at Stratford, on the Meeker property. At the end of October the Board formally hired her as the Venue Manager.


At the December Board meeting, Donna Meyer was approved for the position of Executive Director, and officially assumed her role on January 1. Donna has been a board member for 6 years, and also has served as Communication Committee chair, so she is intimately familiar with the operations at DCHS.

Please join us in welcoming both Connie and Donna, and stay tuned for more exciting announcements regarding the Delaware County Historical Society in 2016!
