How To Become a Member of the Alliance Historical Society

The Alliance Historical Society is governed by a Board of Trustees. Anyone
interested in the history of Alliance or the vicinity may become a member
of the Alliance Historical Society. Your membership and donation dollars
help support the preservation and educational activities of the society and
maintenance of the Mabel Hartzell Historical Home.

Consider giving this year to take advantage of a special tax deduction.

The CARES Act allows donations to non-profit organizations up to $300 by anyone who takes the standard deduction (up to $600 per couple); you don’t need to itemize to benefit from this provision. Please help us Save Alliance’s History!**
