Founded in 1923, we are a “one of a kind” non-profit organization** that supports regional historical museums and sites by providing grant monies for preservation and restoration of cultural artifacts. We own over 350 local, regional and national treasures that are placed in local historical buildings and museums; such as antique furniture, textiles, paintings, lighting fixtures, china, silver and objects of art. Our most noteworthy pieces include a rare Abraham Lincoln photo signed by the President, 25 paintings by Howard Pyle, valuable oriental rugs, and a painting by Cristofano Allori called “The Hospitality of St. Julian.”
An Annual Antique Show and Sale fundraiser is held each November with proceeds being granted to local museums and institutions in Brown County. Plan to attend our

The Society purchased an art collection from the Brown County Library for $1.2 million dollars through the 2007 Community Save Our Cultural Heritage Campaign. By doing so, we retained these items for our community. We invite you to learn about the treasures we own and to join us in this worthy endeavor.
