A life membership supports the Historical Society in perpetuity. The tax-deductible contribution goes into an endowment fund that is permanently restricted for operations. The income from the fund in effect covers your membership dues in perpetuity. Life members receive all the benefits of annual memberships; in addition, they receive a lapel pin and an invitation to an exclusive
event each year. Life memberships are $1,000 for individuals and $1,500 for couples.
We deeply appreciate the generous contributions of the Historical Society of Cheshire County’s life members!

Lifetime Membership $1,000.00 (individual) / $1,500.00 (couple)

in perpetuity, a lifetime membership can make that happen. Lifetime
memberships are now available at a price of $1,000 for individuals and
