How You Can Help
         For over 50 years the Historical Society has exercised faithful stewardship of the Upper Wolfsnare House. It receives no funding from City, State or Corporate sources, and the Board of Governors is grateful to the many members and friends whose contributions have made our work possible.
        The Upper Wolfsnare House, completed in 1761, is in critical need of some work. The goal of our fundraising campaign is to raise $25,000 to replace all 15 windows and repair or replace the rear door and sill. Additional money will be used for needed arboreal work on the property as well as helping update our educational out-reach programs. 

Donate to the John Ballio Building Fund

*This money is only used for the repair and maintenance of the Upper Wolfsnare House.

Donate to the General Fund by Purchasing a Commemorative Brick

*In addition to supplimenting the building fund, this money is used to pay the Historical Society's operating costs and to fund our educational out-reach programs.
