The historical society is sponsoring additional research about matters of direct interest to the history of Paradise Township. Our members and guest speakers have devoted countless hours to researching their topics and making presentations.  The information accumulated and presented through those efforts is invaluable. This project is not intended to replace those volunteer research projects, but rather to complement them by expanding the universe of researchers interested in the history of Paradise.
