VAN WERT — This upcoming Saturday, May 10, at 9 a.m. will be a cleanup day at the Van Wert County Historical Society Museum. Left over leaves need to are removed, windows washed, displays cleaned and miscellaneous cleaning. Museum members and volunteers are needed to help.

Without the generosity of our members and donors we would be unable to provide the free quality programs and activities scheduled during the year. The trustees are thankful for all who support the museum.

It costs $1000 a month just to keep the doors open and operating. This does not include maintenance such as repairs and painting. If you are not a museum member please consider helping to preserve our county’s heritage by becoming a member. All museum memberships are tax deductible.
