Invest In Your Local History

A $30 gift enables us to cover the costs of research requests, conducting a typical oral interview, and more.

If this is not a good time for you to donate, we understand.  If you can give now, THANK YOU!

Cutting services will be the outcome without your help.

Together we will save and share local history.

Become a History GEM!

The GEM donor program is an exciting program that allows our members a flexible and easy way to support the mission of DCHS. GEM membership stands for Giving Every Month. It is an alternative to traditional annual membership, which replaces your yearly dues with a reoccurring monthly payment from your bank. No more membership expiration or renewal letters!

Our Goal is 100 History GEMS



Masks are recommended at the General Crook House Museum and Library Archives Center
