The Ridgely Historical Society was formed by Janice White the end of 2005 at a request from the Town Manager. The idea to form an historical society was an offshoot of an attempt by the Town to create an historical district. While this didn't happen, the Ridgely Historical Society became a chapter of the Caroline County Historical Society in March of 2006. Donations made to Ridgely Historical Society, are tax deductible.
