The Alsi Historical and Genealogical Society is a non-profit organization formed in November of 1980. Alsi, the original name of the native American Indians who lived along the Alsea Bay, was the inspiration for the name of the Society.  Alsi means peaceful.

Our mission is to provide a place to preserve and display artifacts and objects for the public’s education and enjoyment, illustrating the history of South Lincoln County;
To collect and preserve any and all materials of genealogical and local historic value. These materials include land records, school records, photographs, newspapers, letters, books, articles and maps.

Collected items and artifacts are on display at THE WALDPORT HERITAGE MUSEUM, now located inside The Historic Alsea Bay Bridge Interpretive Center at the south end of The Alsea Bridge in Waldport.
