The Adams County Historical Society is chartered by the Nebraska Department of State and the Internal Revenue Service as a 501-C non-profit educational institution. It is supported in small part by the Adams County Board of Supervisors. Its major support comes from its membership fees.
If we do not preserve and reclaim valuable pieces of history now, it is lost forever. Please consider the Adams County Historical Society when reviewing charitable donations and estate planning.
All Contributions beyond the Annual $18 Membership fee are tax-deductible. We appreciate your membership and gifts.
