The Washington County Historical Society is closed to the public until further notice in order to help curtail the spread of COVID-19.  This includes the Francis J. LeMoyne House, the LeMoyne Crematory, the Norma K. Grimes Research Library, and the Washington Country Frontier History Center.  All WCHS events, meetings, and programs are postponed until further notice.  During the closure of our usual physical operations, please follow our social media platforms for the latest online programming from WCHS. 

 

Amidst the COVID-19 crisis, we ask our members and friends to consider the human services-oriented organizations in our community that are in crucial need of support at this difficult time.  Please support those other organizations if you can.

 

With a spirit of hopefulness, WCHS looks forward to the appropriate time when we can pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and get back to work.  Prior to the emergence of the COVID-19 crisis, WCHS was positioned to achieve some truly great things.  In order to resume that work, we will almost certainly need an injection of funding to re-start our operations.  

 

At such time as the immediate crisis of the COVID-19 crisis may abate enough to allow us to resume operations, support from our members and friends will provide an energy source to help get our wheels turning again.  At the appropriate time, we ask our members and friends in the community to please keep WCHS in mind.  Thank you.
