Become a Member

Our members are the support structure of the Museum of Early Trades & Crafts. Members are partners in our mission to tell the story of early settlers’ lives 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. Thank you for your support, and we hope we see you at METC soon.
