Originally hailing from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Maureen Schuyler was employed as a legal secretary for the City of Philadelphia until moving to Florida where she and her husband Jim raised their two children. As a stay-at-home Mom, Maureen volunteered throughout her children’s school years as PTA President, yearbook advisor, and newsletter editor. Once her children entered college, Maureen did the same and earned an Associate of Arts degree from Pasco-Hernando State College.
Maureen and Jim moved to Senoia in 2009 and immediately became involved in their new hometown, joining the Senoia Optimists Club and the Senoia Area Historical Society. When SAHS membership voiced the need to open our building at 6 Couch Street as a museum, Maureen provided the leadership and time investment to open the doors in 2010, establishing and maintaining appropriate records for the collection and exhibition of Senoia artifacts. She continues to be responsible for the day-to-day operation of the museum and staffing of volunteers. She also coordinates special events and presents Senoia’s unique history to community organizations and clubs.
Aside from her role as Museum director, Maureen served for six years on the Senoia Historic Preservation Commission and has served as a member of the Coweta County Library Advisory Board. Currently she volunteers on the Senoia Downtown Development Authority’s Design Committee, and is a member of the Senoia Variety Club and the Garden Club of Senoia.
Jim and Maureen have been married for 45 years. They also have the added blessing of both their adult children, Christine and Vincent, living in Senoia with their young families.
