Become a member:
Membership in the Chisago County Historical Society is open to anyone interested in the history of Chisago County. Membership fees are used for the daily operation of the society.

A membership does not require participation in activities, except as your interest, time and talents permit. If you would like to be a volunteer with the society, please write, email or call the office to discuss your ideas. We can use any amount of help you can offer!

Benefits of membership:
You will help the society fulfill its mission of providing a variety of educational programs year around. These events range from genealogy workshops, folk art demonstrations at local community festivals, and other special events featuring food, fellowship and guest speakers. Visit our Upcoming Events page for more information.

Your membership also helps support the History Center research library. This facility and its resources are available to anyone who is in search of information about their ancestors who resided in this area of Minnesota. Your membership contribution helps expand this history research collection as we continue to acquire, sort and catalog new materitals.

Methods of payment:
We accept checks and money orders through mail via the USPS. Our PayPal account provides additional flexibility with credit and debit card options. Click here to learn how PayPal works!

PayPal auto renewal of your membership:
You can now select the automatic renewal of your membership contribution. This opt-in feature will extend your membership for another year as an "auto-renewal" on your charge card statement. This option will eliminate renewal reminders, check writing, and mailing issues while ensuring your uninterrupted support.

PayPal recurring monthly donation:
You can select a subscription method that divides your annual support across 12-months when you choose the $3, $6, $10, $15, or $20 level. This recurring charge will appear on your credit or debit card statement each month. It's a convenient way to streamline your budget while supporting history every month!
