Membership in The Lansingburgh Historical Society keeps you in touch with all the programs and events that the society has to offer. You’ll not want to miss the fascinating speakers who present programs on local history, people, and places.

Our various fund raisers, silent auctions, sales and dinners offers all sorts of antiques, collectibles, books, art works and services. Come and share camaraderie with those with an interest in Lansingburgh, Herman Melville, and American history.  Membership also entitles you to participate in L.H.S. elections, for election as an officer or Trustee, to serve on committees and to offer your skills in keeping the society alive. We are always looking for people to donate their time and talent. Contact any trustee to offer your services.

Membership carries with it a subscription to The Courier, the newsletter of the Lansingburgh Historical Society.
