Upcoming Exhibits

Pile of Trunks - Complete

Thank you!

We made our goal!

Please look forward to the grand opening in the spring of 2018!

Additional contributions can still be made online here.

The Cumberland County Historical Society looks forward to 2017 & 2018 for pending upgrades to several galleries in the museum’s permanent exhibit space.

CCHS is looking forward to 2018 as the year we update the permanent galleries in the museum.  Even though they’re called “permanent,” museums often strive to refresh their exhibits every five to ten years if possible.  Although CCHS has made small changes and added more artifacts since 2005, it’s time to spice things up!  Every gift will fill in a little more color on our “luggage thermometer” until we reach the total goal of $10,000.  Your donations will help determine how much we can accomplish.
