"MEMBER (mem'ber) n. 1. a distinct part or element of a whole."

Our members are the support structure of the Museum of Early Trades & Crafts. It costs so little to achieve so much! Members are partners in our mission to tell the story of early settlers’ lifeways and to preserve and explain the timeless cultural values of pre-industrial society in America.

The Museum’s non-profit structure makes membership dues a vital part of our budget. Individual membership costs just $35 for one year. If you can offer us stronger support, please join at a Family rate, or become a Patron to show your stewardship. Thank you for your support, and we hope we see you at METC soon.
