You can designate your gift to be unrestricted or you can ask that your donation be used for future renovation projects.


Donations and dues help to provide the funds needed to perform routine maintenance/upkeep of the History Center property, present local history programs and tours, produce newsletters, and continue to archive historical documents.

Also, we are very thankful for contributions from donors for the preservation project of the WFHS History Center known to locals as “the little white church.” It houses our collection of archives and artifacts. The church, built in 1898, was originally a landmark structure for the town of Howard and is currently designated by Fremont County as a historically significant site. The structure itself is in good condition given its age and history, but there is now a critical need for essential physical repairs, especially to the foundation, exterior siding, and windows. In 2018, the building celebrated its 120th birthday. In the fall of 2019, necessary steps to preserve this landmark for generations to come will begin.

Here is how you can help: Please consider making an unrestricted contribution to WFHS. Your donation, whatever the size, will demonstrate community support for our activities and projects.
