Support CTHS

The Society is a non-profit organization that relies on the public to support our efforts,
through memberships, volunteer time, and donations.  We appreciate those who send
in their annual dues regularly, our volunteers without whom we could not exist, and the
donations of many who give generously.

What we do:

We maintain an extensive collection of artifacts, books, photographs, and papers at the
Virginia Merion DeNenno History and Educational Center in the Pierce-Willits House,
which was renovated and reopened in May 2014 with new exhibits that showcase our local history.

We are stewards for that site as well as that of the Polecat Road House, our founding
symbol, and provide necessary maintenance to preserve these important historic properties.

We share our local history with the public through this website, tours at the Virginia Merion DeNenno History & Educational Center’s museum, Facebook, and events and programs.

How you can help:

Please check out Become a Member to join us, or to send in your annual dues.

For those who have time to give, please look at our Volunteer Opportunities.

If you are able to give extra to support our many activities, please Donate.

Please note that you can pay dues or donate online through Paypal/Credit Card.

Thank you for supporting us!
