Join, Support and Volunteer

The Dorchester County Historical Society and its home, The Heritage Museums and Gardens of Dorchester, means different things to different people.  It’s a research center, museum, lecture hall, place to meet others that share your interests, and so on. 

DCHS and its campus receive no monies from local, state or federal sources to fund its operations.  So, general expenses like utilities, payroll, upkeep and insurance have to be covered each year through membership dues, donations, event income and sponsorships.  In addition, an Endowment Fund is being “built” to prepare for future funding needs. 

There are different levels of membership, including corporate that may be considered when joining. Our very popular Heritage Gold Plan has been expanded and covers individual members, family members and benefactors.   That plan allows for discounts at over 20 area businesses, including restaurants and more.  For membership information, click here.
