HISTORY IS ESSENTIAL...
Old Entrance 1_edited.jpg

For more than a century, the Allen County Historical Society has been preserving our area's rich history. Your membership is more than an expression of your interest in history, antiquities, innovation, and tradition. It is an affirmation of the significant role that our organization and Museum plays in our community and beyond. You will gain access to exciting educational and entertaining programs, exhibitions, behind the scenes perspectives, and valuable  discounts - all while supporting the Society's century-long legacy of making our Museum available to everyone.

History nurtures personal identity and enables us to discover our own place within the stories of our families, communities, and nation. Stories of freedom and equality, injustice and struggle, loss and achievement, and courage and triumph help us to understand how the world in which we live was shaped by those who came before. Through these varied stories, we develop personal values that guide our approach to life and our relationships with others.

History is the foundation for strong and vibrant communities. A place only becomes a community when it's wrapped in human memory. Our connections and commitment to one another are strengthened when we share stories and experiences.

History is essential to our future. At the heart of democracy is the practice of individuals coming together to express views and take action. Weaving history into discussions about current issues clarifies differing perspectives, reveals complexities, grounds competing views in evidence, and introduces new ideas all of which can lead to greater understanding and viable community solutions.
