History Starts With You

As the world comes together during these uncertain times, the lessons of the past act to guide us through the challenges we face. Our mission as has never been more important, as a community gathering place and as a history museum.

Even though we temporarily closed our doors on March 17th, Heritage Square is fully committed to continuing its work digitally, expanding our online outreach to our community. However, the financial challenges we are facing are significant and impossible to ignore. As an independent nonprofit, we rely on museum admissions, memberships, donations, rentals and events to support our operations. The revenue we’ve lost is from our busiest time of the year, and now it is gone. The resources the government has given through the Paycheck Protection Loan Program have been frozen, and our staff is facing furlough in the near future.

With that in mind, we are asking for your help. If you are able, please donate to our Giving Tuesday Now Emergency Fund on or before Tuesday, May 5th. Every donation is a key investment in the future of Heritage Square.

Thank you to everyone who has already engaged in our digital content, made a purchase from our online store, become a member, or provided a financial contribution. Your support has played a critical roll in helping advance our mission and preserving the history of Heritage Square during this crucial time.
