As a private institution, not a county or state agency, the Historical Society of Rockland County depends on charitable contributions to fulfill its educational and preservation mission. It is membership dues and donations that allow the Society to continue to provide award-winning programs, exhibitions, and services. These include operating the circa 1832 Jacob Blauvelt Farmstead as a museum; the History Center, which houses our gallery, collections storage, and library and administrative space; and maintaining the Society's ambitious schedule of popular bus trips, History in Your Own Backyard bus tours, guided history-themed walks, and other exceptional on-site and outreach programs.

Communities thrive in part through the quality and extent of the cultural offerings the support. If you are interested in supporting the Historical Society as a unique feature in the Rockland County community, we encourage you to become a member.

Benefits of membership in the Historical Society of Rockland County include:

  • Quarterly mailings of South of the Mountains, Rockland County's only journal of local history, which has been published continuously since 1957.

  • Timely mailings of invitations to and announcements of our events and programs.

  • 10 percent discounts on HSRC publications, maps, and items for sale in our Museum Shop.

  • Reduced fees for HSRC programs and services.

The Historical Society of Rockland County provides a variety of options for membership, to suit a wide range of needs. Individual dues start at $25 per year (students and seniors).
