Your Membership is crucial to Mason County Historical Society’s ability to achieve its mission–collecting, preserving, and interpreting historically important artifacts, archives, and buildings of Mason County.  

Take a moment to reflect on your personal connection to Mason County. Maybe your ancestors were immigrant farmers, lumbermen, sailors, or perhaps they worked on the carferries or served in the U.S. Coast Guard. Maybe you simply have an enduring love of history and recognize that preserving our past assures our successful future.   

Ensure that your personal connection gets the recognition your family should have through support of our two museums—Historic White Pine Village (HWPV) and the Port of Ludington Maritime Museum (PLMM), and help MCHS deliver its quality exhibits and programming.  BECOME A MEMBER OR RENEW YOUR MEMBERSHIP TODAY! Your financial support through Membership is vital to our continued success!
