Giving to the Museum

Give Local St. Joseph County

The History Museum is proud to participate in Give Local St. Joseph County, taking place on Tuesday, May 9, 2017. This year is an especially significant time to make a donation to The History Museum, because we are celebrating our 150th anniversary.


In 1867, a group of 33 residents of St. Joseph County resolved to formally preserve local history. The organization they established 150 years ago is the second oldest historical society in Indiana. Today—as The History Museum—it is a thriving, impressive institution that collects and preserves over a half million objects in its collection, educates the public through immersive exhibits and programs, and interprets the past in many ways, all of which capture the essence of why history museums exist.


The museum needs your financial support to ensure we are still able to serve the St. Joseph River Valley for 150 years to come. Learn more about The History Museum’s participation in Give Local St. Joseph County by clicking here.
