Men at the Museum

The History Center and honorary chairperson Matt Clark invite you to a cocktail party fundraiser just for men.

Men at MusuemEnjoy heavy hors d’oeuvres, drinks, music, cigars and shoe shining.

We have a unique opportunity this year for our Men at the Museum guests.

The Watson-Curtze Mansion is the keystone of the History Center campus, and the solarium on the east side of the building is in need of a new roof. We believe the present roof is 50-60 years old. It has been repaired many times, but it is now in need of replacement. The new roof will cost about $42,000. 

The gutters and downspouts are also in need of replacement. The City of Erie agreed to award the History Center a grant in the amount of $15,000 to handle this part of the project. This work began in March in agreement with the grant requirements.

Our goal is to replace the roof as soon as possible.  This will stop the water leaks coming into the solarium. 

Invitations will be mailed in May. If you’d like to receive an invitation or have any questions, please call us at 814-454-1813 x 34 or

Men under the age of 40 will pay their age. For example, if you are 30 years old,  your price will be $30.

For all other men, tickets are $100/each.

Thank you for your consideration and for making history with us!
