Why become a member? Museum visitors range from school children, to families, to government and business officials and tourists. All learn something from the Museum about our history! The Museum receives no operational funding from any governmental agency. Doors are kept open by the support of citizens and businesses who provide annual membership dues, and through memorial donations, and other fund-raising Events. The Museum has many Volunteers who conduct most of the business of operating and maintaining the Museum, but keeping the Museum open costs money. Your Membership and Support allow the Historical Society and Museum to keep the Museum doors open. Thank you for your consideration and help to preserve our history!
