Historical Messenger

After a number of years not being sent out the Historical Messenger e-newsletter is back and hopefully will be more frequent. We are trying something new to get the news and our collective history out to the masses.  There are many fantastic things happening at the Washington County Historical Society and we want you not only to know about them but also to participate in them. We need to have our history preserved and recorded for future generations .
Since this is the beginning of the year make sure you have renewed your membership to the Society. The Washington County Historical Society can only survive with members who feel that our history is important and want to help preserve it. If you are not a member then you should become a member — your membership dollars help with the maintenance of the museums and to make sure that they are open to the public.  Really, the success of the WCHS is up to you!
If you have any comments on what the staff should be doing please let us know. You can email us at 

 Thank you for your interest and we hope to see you at our museums and events this coming season.
