Membership Information

History is a collection of stories. Stories of individuals, of families and communities. The Monroe County History Center collects, preserves, researches, interprets and presents the genealogy, history and artifacts of Monroe County, Indiana.  Each year thousands of school children, community members and visitors walk through our doors to tour our changing exhibits, participate in programs at the Center or with outreach programs.

Your membership dollars help. They enable us to make access to our genealogy research library free, keep our admission prices to the museum low, and enable us to keep evolving our exhibits and offer new programs.

Thank you for joining and helping us keep our community’s stories alive.
