Bringing History to Life Campaign

Annual Giving

Our annual appeal occurs late in the year and allows individuals to make additional contributions to the HSAHS to maximize their tax deductions. Last year, our annual appeal provided nearly one third of our revenue for the year. Click the Donate button on this page to give online using PayPal (all major credit cards accepted).

Gifts In Memory or In Honor of a Loved One

The Historical Society welcomes gifts to recognize the person(s) of your choice in this special way and will acknowledge your donation in its quarterly newsletter. Notification will also be sent to the designated person or family member. These contributions will support the our operating budget unless otherwise specified by the donor.

Purchase a Brick

The Historical Society continues to offer bricks for $150 which may be engraved with up to three lines, 15 spaces on each line, and the bricks are permanently affixed in the outdoor patio on the museum grounds. Download a brick order form here.


A permanent endowment fund has been established with the Petoskey-Harbor Springs Area Community Foundation. Endowment funds will safeguard the long-term operation and maintenance of the history museum.
