- Usage: (1951- )
The Cache Valley historical society (CVHS) (1951- ) is the oldest chapter of the Utah Historical Society.
The Cache Valley historical society was created on October 24th, 1951 with 52 original members. The main focus of the society was creating a history of Cache Valley for the 100th anniversary of settlement and the preservation of historical documents.
The society was closely associated with the Utah State University through the 1970's. Many professors were members of the society, and the society's events reflected the calendar of the university. Today the society is less connected to USU. The Cache Valley historical society aims to give platform to quality speakers and preserve the history of Cache Valley.
