The Aragon Historical Society is looking for a few good men and women. We need help in pursuing our goal of collecting, preserving, and displaying the history of our town and surrounding areas. We meet the first Thursday of every month at the Aragon City Hall at 7:00 PM. Please come join us! The dues are very reasonable. Ten dollars a year for individuals and fifteen dollars a year for couples. School-age children can join for three dollars a year. Contact us via this page or just come out over to the meeting. We look forward to having you join us in our efforts.

Volunteering can help you make friends, learn new skills, advance your career, and even stay healthy. Learn how to find the right fit.

What remains of the Aragon Depot. The owner of the property was kind enough to allow us to take these Photographs with the proviso that we not reveal its current location. She doesn't want a lot of people trespassing on her property
