Chapin Historical Association is charged with helping the Town preserve the history of Chapin through:
- Acquisition of artifacts
- Documenting of history
- Planning for a future museum
- Preserving historic structures
Led by a group of volunteers, the Chapin Historical Association successfully achieved 501 (c)3 non-profit organization status in 2016. The group is currently pursuing the designation of a Chapin Historic Commercial District in the downtown area to incorporate buildings along Lexington Avenue, Beaufort and Clark Streets.
