Become A Member of the
Wayne County Historical Society

Memberships are a vital contribution to organizations like ours. By becoming a member, or renewing your membership annually, you invest in our mission: to preserve and share local history. In exchange for your membership, we offer you Benefits and Discounts that we hope you will find valuable. Don’t forget that memberships also make a great gift!

First, choose one of three levels of regular membership.


  • SINGLE: 1 Person - $25


  • DUAL: 2 Persons in one household - $35

  • FAMILY / GRANDPARENT: At least 1 Adult plus all members of household up to 5 persons. Grandparent Option is included in the Family Level. This offers the same benefits of family level without the grandkids having to be part of the household. This makes it easy to bring the grandkids anytime and introduce local history to their inquisitive minds. - $50
