Help us!

Last year, due to expenses at the Museum, the Historical Society had a $5,000 shortfall. We are a small volunteer nonprofit organization struggling to make ends meet. We need donations to help us with utilities and other expenses. Any donation would be greatly appreciated!

To facilitate the membership process, you can join the Society or make a donation toward the upkeep of the museum and collections via a PayPal payment.
