A letter from the Board of Directors
 
Friends of the Heritage Museum Park,

Thank you for your continued support of the Ethnic Heritage Museum and Graham-Ginestra House. The Holiday Season is quickly approaching, as is a new year! While 2020 has been filled with turbulent and uncertain times, we are continuing to make progress with a new gazebo project and are working to build upon our virtual and in-person experiences. Construction on the gazebo is scheduled to start soon and we couldn’t be more excited. Stay tuned for special Holiday events and programs!

We are grateful for our growing team of volunteers who work very hard to ensure the museums are beautiful and memorable tourist attractions. We also appreciate the volunteers who take our ethnic stories to after-school children, adult groups, and any available community events. From gardeners to tour guides, new volunteers are always welcome!

We value your past support and ask for your continued support of these historical Rockford attractions by renewing your membership for 2021. By renewing your membership now, you can enjoy NEW member benefits at current 2020 prices through the rest of 2020 and all of 2021. Also, for a limited time, members are invited to an in-depth tour of both museums and rarely seen rooms and artifacts.

Become a member of the Heritage Museum Park!

The Heritage Museum Park 501(c)3 is a not-for-profit organization founded to honor and preserve the cultures and history prominent in southwest Rockford, the place where Rockford began.
