Make History With Us and join in Erie’s downtown resurgence with a gift to the Annual Fund.

What a year it has been!

And what a year it will be at the Hagen History Center!   In 2021, we know everyone will be anxious to get out of the house and we’re ready. 

  • We’re ready with a new exhibit building with 3 new galleries and an exhibit of national significance.
  • We’re ready with a restored Wood-Morrison House with 3 new exhibit galleries
  • We’re ready with a dynamic speaker series, educational opportunities, driving/walking tours, and events on our campus.
  • And we’re ready with a new permanent exhibit and several temporary exhibits in the beautiful Watson-Curtze Mansion.

In addition to all of that, HHC is part of Erie’s downtown resurgence, and you have an opportunity to make history with us in restoring part of Erie.   

Become part of this history-in-the-making endeavor with your gift to the Annual Fund.  This year your donation is needed now more than ever because of lost revenue from admissions and the cancellation of fundraising events since March 2019 due to COVID-19.

You can make your gift online using the donate button or use the attached sheet for opportunities to support student field trips, maintain the campus, or help promote Erie’s heritage for current and future generations.   In addition, you can also use the attached sheet to request more information on sponsoring a room, on planned giving opportunities, or on buying a brick on the Carriage House Patio. 

Since 1903, Erie County Historical Society has been dedicated to collecting, preserving and promoting the study of our region’s rich history for future generations, and we’d like to invite you to continue to join us in this mission as a supporter of the Hagen History Center.

Whichever way you choose to support the HHC, know that you’ll become part of Erie’s history and the effort to support Erie’s resurgence. 

Should you have any questions, please contact us at 814-454-1813 x 34.

Thank you for your consideration.
