The Flower Hill Village Historical Gallery is the Village of Flower Hill’s very own local history gallery. Officially established by the Village of Flower Hill in September 2023 and created by Village Historian Mitchell Schwartz, the Historical Gallery’s main goals are:
- To further preserve the history and heritage of the Village of Flower Hill
- To strengthen pride in our community
- To foster a love, understanding, and appreciation for local history and education amongst all members of the public
- To serve as a valuable educational resource for our community and the surrounding areas
