The newsletter of the Tyrone Area Historical Society is published as a benefit for members. It was introduced by Paul and Suzanne Ohl in February 1991 and published aperiodically. After the passing of Paul in September 1995, editorship was taken over by Charlie and Marge Hoyer in January 1996.
With a name change by Marge to Tyrone PastTimes, the newsletter was placed on a quarterly publication schedule to keep members updated on the activities and programs of the Society and its Tyrone History Museum.
The newsletter was expanded to include a regular feature: an interview with a local notable, many of which were conducted by Society board member Susie O’Brien.
Another regular feature is the “Tyrone Trivia Quiz,” started by board member Lori Eckert and now continued by various contributors. Articles on various topics by Cary Simpson, Gary Long, Robert W. Hamor, Suzi Walls, Jeffery Adams, Michael Bezilla, and Scott Troutman are very popular with readers.
Of course, a message from Society President Nancy A. Smith appears in every issue.
In July 2009, after 13 years, Charlie and Marge “passed the baton” to Viola Dollar.
