Become an RMWHS Member Today

For more than 50 years, RMWHS has focused on preserving and promoting local history, art, and culture – and despite our inability to hold in-person meetings in 2020/2021  – our dedication to the RMWHS mission remains strong.

​​

  • In December 2020, RMWHS launched this website to better promote and share our local history, art and culture. Within the first two months, we had visitors from across the United States and overseas.

  • Our virtual presence on the Web increased awareness of RMWHS and our mission and generated interest in our efforts which resulted in new members, volunteers, financial donations, photo donations, research requests, and more.
