Membership Options

The Rye Historical Society invites anyone who is interested in preserving Rye history to join the society. Since 1976, the Rye Historical Society has relied on membership dues and contributions from local people to fund the society's programs and maintain the museum.​

We’re excited to have updated our membership levels and benefits. Here’s a summary of what members will receive beginning March 1, 2020. (Note the $15 entrance level. If you are a member currently at the $10 level, we will honor your current membership at the $15 level for a two-year grace period if you prefer.) All programs will continue to be offered to members and non-members alike, although we will invite non-member attendees to make a $5 donation if possible.
