Historic preservation lives at the intersection of past & present.

Your investment for education, advocacy, and collections stewardship is needed to influence its future. Please join or renew your membership today!

Your help is needed to:

  • Highlight preservation as an important civic value and address the many advocacy issues that affect where we live, as well as historic schools, churches, traditional Main Streets, and downtown landmarks.
  • Support continuing development of the neighborhood walking tours and other programs which meaningfully illustrate why heritage matters and teach us to appreciate and sustain our legacy.
  • Demonstrate the interconnection between sustainability and historic preservation.

Our communities benefit from your membership gift, and it is also a great value for you, including significant discounts on programs, free AHC library usage, reciprocity with the Clark County Historical Museum, and unlimited visits to AHC exhibits.

Your support is greatly needed as well as appreciated. Join today to support local historic preservation!
