2023 Annual Appeal

Dear Friend,

The mission of the Grant County Historical Society is to enrich lives by collecting, preserving, and sharing the history of Grant County Wisconsin.  Since 1935, the Grant County Historical Society has been sharing Grant County history through museum exhibits, local history presentations, and events.

Our exhibits relate to geology, mining, military, sports, local artifacts and the Pleasant Ridge Community.  We collaborate with the Grant County Genealogical Society and the Grant County Research Center which is available to the public for family and county history research.  We have a large collection of archival material and photos available for use in schools, by genealogists, historians, and history buffs.

We can’t do any of this without the many volunteers who step up to work in the Museum, Research Center, Stone Cottage and on our Historical Society Committees, if you would like to become a volunteer, please let us know; stop in, 129 E Maple St Lancaster or phone 608-723-4925, email historicalsociety@tds.net.

Your support is deeply appreciated, either by making a monetary donation, becoming a member or both, it will help us continue to tell the history of Grant County, a story we promise to share for generations to come. Please download, print, and fill out the Annual Appeal Form to accompany your donation. We also welcome PayPal donations through our Grant County Historical Society website.

Thank you,

Margie Sherwin President, Larry Busch Vice President, Linda Vesperman Secretary, Judy Vesperman Treasurer, Directors: Joyce Bos, Teresa Burns, Sonia Case, Laurie Graney, Kathleen Schink, Joe Sherwin, Dennis (DA) Wilson, Melissa Schneider and Genealogical Society Representative Karen Reese
