Membership & Volunteering







Join The Rutland Historical Society

You can be a part of the Society in three different ways: become a member, make a donation or serve as a volunteer. Each way is rewarding and you donít have to limit yourself to just one way. You can do one, two or all three.

Make a donation Ė You can make a difference

The Society has a wish list and you can help us reach our goals by donating items to us or by sending us a contribution toward the items in order for us to meet our need.

Items on our wish list:

Donate historical materials from Rutland. This includes materials from the municipalities of Proctor, Rutland City, Rutland Town and West Rutland. If you don’t want to part with the original items consider letting the Society make copies. The Society looks for materials such as diaries, collections of letters, family photo albums, family genealogies, old telephone books, directories, school, yearbooks, postcards, old photos, and most anything that has to do with Rutland. 

Help us to purchase preservation and storage materials. This includes archival storage boxes and supplies to store and preserve our collection of glass plates, artifacts, photographs, manuscripts, etc. This is a continuing need as we expand our collections.

Memorial Gifts in any amount will be gratefully accepted.

Become a Benefactor. Remember us in your will. No donation is too large or too small. We will put the money to good use as outlined above. Also consider a donation of stock or other property.

The Rutland Historical Society, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and donations are tax deductible.
