Through their efforts the story of this unique marching band that represented Grove City internationally has a permanent home in the Grove City Historical Society.


The Grove City Area Historical Society is at 111 College Ave. in the former Traveler's Hotel. Two floors of Grove City memories are complete with new displays and acquisitions. A new stair lift has been recently installed to make the second floor more accessible.
