There are many ways to get involved with the Richfield Historical Society. You don’t have to pick just one!

Join at the $35 Deluxe Membership level and receive special invitations to sneak previews for all of our exhibit openings plus a copy of Suburban Dawn by Fred Johnson and Thomas Tuttle to enjoy or to give as a gift.

Be a Volunteer
Gift the gift of time to the Richfield Historical Society. Each year, hundreds of volunteer hours are given by community members and you can be a part of the action. Volunteers are needed in many areas from the reception desk and data entry to odd jobs and building exhibits. You can volunteer once or make a habit of it! Call or email us if you are interested in being a part of the team.
Be an Intern
Are you a student or professional looking to add new experiences and skills? Richfield Historical Society has a thriving intern program that gives hands on experience in exhibits, collections, programming, and many other areas. Exhibits Interns work as part of a design team to research, design, and build an exhibit from idea board to opening night. Internships in other areas are focused on projects with tangible results. Interning at a small museum gives big rewards– Interns at RHS don’t make coffee, they make history!
Be a Donor
You can support your historical society with a tax deductible donation that lets the whole community enjoy the history of Richfield. You may choose to give a one-time donation, to donate the dividends of stock or an IRA, or to sponsor an event or exhibit. Richfield Historical Society is supported by your donations and does not receive municipal or county support. We offer a free museum and many free events that are open to the entire community. Your donations help us fulfill our mission! Call or email us today to talk about how you can help support your local historical society.
