Oldest of its kind in nation. Founded in 1902 by William W. Wertz and other Elk River residents to raise the civic, religious and educational standards of the community. The group meets for three days every August at its home site, "Rockwood Glen." Prominent speakers appear on the programs. The Pinch schoolhouse (1865-1913) on the grounds was acquired by the Association and is now used as a community building.
