The Mason County Historical Society greatly appreciates the generous support of our community. Thanks to the support of our sponsors we have created a village where our visitors can spend time together making memories all while experiencing a bygone era. Since 1937, the Society has endeavored to cultivate a deeper understanding and appreciation for local history. We could not meet the mission of the society without the generous support of our sponsors. Their support provides for us the ability to fulfill the mission that we are committed and honored to do. So please help us to express our heartfelt thanks by supporting our Corporate Sponsors.
The support of our Business Partners goes a long way towards ensuring the success of our mission – preserving and interpreting our past for this generation and generations to come. Their generous support ensures that our past comes alive in a way that inspires and informs our future!
