Why I Support
My mother's family, Basses and Hickmans, were early settlers; I grew up w/ stories & photos from Columbia. The BCHS is incredibly active, dedicated to educating & preserving county history, including ours. I'm a life member. Pls donate if so moved.
What I’m Doing
I'm sending this to a select list of relatives or friends who have some connection to Boone County themselves, saying this is a nice thing to support if you're inclined; I'll match it unless you exceed my wildest dreams. Deadline. 12/31. THANK YOU!

More on Boone County History & Culture Center
What We Do
We collect, preserve and exhibit Boone County's history and culture. Our history museum, the Montminy Art Gallery, 'Boone Village,' and Maplewood House are all part of the History & Culture Center and operated by the Boone County Historical Society.
Why We're Great
We are the only history and culture center of its kind devoted to Boone County. Exhibits, concerts, book talks, art gallery events--something for all ages and backgrounds. 750 members, 100 regular volunteers, and 5 employees--all working for YOU!
Why does your organization deserve community financial support?
Because every community needs and deserves a history and culture center. Because our history matters. It informs us. We are the custodians of the historical records, artifacts and artwork that make up our collective past. Thank you for your help!
