Support – Membership and Giving

Support the Herr House & Longhouse by making a one-time donation or by becoming a member!

Special Giving Opportunity!

In 2019, the Hans Herr House turns 300!  Please help celebrate this special occasion with a special donation that will help the Herr House be on strong financial footing for the next 300 years.  Income from admissions and membership help us to cover many of our costs, but we wouldn’t be able to operate without the generosity of supporters like you.

To help us mark this milestone, would you consider giving a one-time gift of $300?
