Membership Information

Our fundraising project to renovate the exterior of the main museum building continues. Thank you for your generosity. Donations in any amount are very much appreciated and really add up! We will begin work in Spring 2011. Replacing rotting windows and siding, with careful attention to historic detailing, will provide energy efficiency and insure this grand building will grace the Chillicothe community for many years to come.

Members are the foundation of this organization. We couldn’t exist without them. Some members roots go back many generations in the community while others may be new to town. Many have talents to share, but all support us with the gift of their membership. In common is their belief that this is important work, the keeping of local history and the preservation of time and place.

Your membership is tax detectable; your contribution immeasurable.

Assisting at the museums is not a requirement for membership. CHS is an all-volunteer not-for-profit 501c3 organization receiving no government funding. It’s no secret that museums today operate on a shoestring. Large or small, monetary donations are always needed to maintain and improve our museums and our research/genealogy department.

We appreciate your support!

If you have special interests or abilities and wish to help in any of the following areas, Visit & check us out to see if you’d like to assist in the areas of:

We host several educational and fund raising events each year. Come join us for great fun and camaraderie. Many hands make light work!
