The SOUTH EUCLID HISTORICAL SOCIETY was incorporated on 2 March 1966 to preserve historical data and mementos relating to SOUTH EUCLID. In 1967 the society published an 80-page history on the community's 50th anniversary, and, in 1975-76, helped restore a schoolhouse in LYNDHURST as part of the national bicentennial activities.
In 1975 the society acquired quarters in the west wing of the former Telling estate, then owned by the South Euclid-Lyndhurst Branch of the CUYAHOGA COUNTY PUBLIC LIBRARY, at 4645 Mayfield Rd. Here it established a series of display rooms to exhibit period furniture and artifacts or to highlight important aspects of local history, such as the BLUESTONE QUARRIES.
In 1995 the South Euclid Historical Society had 125 members and functioned with a totally volunteer staff. Dues and fundraising projects provided operating revenues. Its curator in 1995 was Esther Eich.
