The interest of friends like you undergirds the Society’s goal of using local history to inform, educate and inspire.  

In each case, membership includes the sincere appreciation of all who value Catawba heritage. Your lifetime and annual subscriptions – coupled with endowment and sponsorship support - underwrite the quality and extent of CIHS programs.

Visit us soon at the Catawba Museum at Union Chapel to see how you are making this possible!

 Lifetime membership in CIHS is available for a single investment of $1,000.  It includes invitation to private events, access to all exhibits before they are officially opened, and tasteful inscription of member names on an appreciation plaque at the Museum. 

Each subscriber also receives a leather-bound edition of the volume Legends of Catawba.  

These subscribers are designated as founders.
