About HHS

Welcome to the Hoover Historical Society 

The Hoover Historical Society was established to promote knowledge about the past, current  and future development of the city, to preserve and make available such material for future reference, to encourage fellowship and public outreach; and to cooperate with other city entities and historical groups.

We maintain an office and library of Hoover history and have a large collection of folklore materials donated from the estate of Jack Crouch. Our building was the earliest Bluff Park Elementary School and now serves the community as the Hoover Community School.

We hold bi-monthly meetings on the third Tuesday at the Hoover Public Library and also special events as well.

We operate, by reservation, an authentic 1800 log home, the Ole’ Stinson Place on Cloudland Drive.

Using the log home as an education center we welcome visitors and school groups to experience life in the 1840’s and meet crafts people who demonstrate their skills.
