At the heart of Johnson House Historic Site, our dedicated supporters form the foundation of our operation. Annual membership dues and contributions play a vital role in fueling our growth and enabling us to offer educational tours, programs, special events, and meaningful community engagement initiatives. While our collaborative efforts with public governmental sources are impactful, it’s crucial to note that they cover only a fraction of our annual needs. The majority of the funding that sustains our site comes from individuals and corporate citizens who appreciate our profound impact and choose to pledge their support, providing the flexible resources required for our continued operations.

Membership Benefits: As a valued member, you’ll enjoy exclusive perks, including Johnson House e-newsletters, complimentary access to events and programming, and special invitations to exclusive gatherings.
