Please help the Hamburg Historical Society!


A personal message from Robert:

As many of you know, I grew up in a small town in Michigan. My elementary school was located in an even smaller hamlet named Hamburg. I have very fond memories of Hamburg and now the Historical Society has reached out to me, and I’m reaching out to you, with a request for help.

The Hamburg Historical Museum is housed in a historic building that began its life in the mid-1850s as a church, housed the township offices in the mid-1900’s and even served as the hamlet’s library. My love of reading (and I’m sure countless other children’s) was fostered here so it has a special place in my heart.

The building became a museum in 2004 with the goal of preserving the history of Hamburg. Working on a shoestring budget, the Historical Society does its best to meet the needs of maintaining a building that is over 150 years old. They have a Tea Room, a Gift Shop and donations, which help with funding from month-to-month.

Recently the Historical Society has discovered that the building needs a new roof, which will cost $30,000 an enormous sum for a small group of volunteers to come up with.

So I’m asking that you make a donation, attend a Museum activity, or become a member of the Historical Society. For donations, just send your name, mailing address and check made out to: Hamburg Historical Society, P.O. Box 272, Hamburg MI 48139.

You can also become a member of the Historical Society by visiting: http://www.hamburg.mi.us/hamburg_historical_museum/

The Museum is located at 7225 Stone Street, Hamburg, MI 48139.
Phone: 810-986-0190
Hours: Wednesday 4:00-7:00pm, Saturday 11:00am-3:00pm.

Thanks in advance for your support!
Robert
