The Bayfield Heritage Association Capital Campaign
"Heritage Vision Campaign"
The Goals of “Heritage Vision Campaign” were to:
- Retire the Construction loan residual of $200,000
- Increase the Endowment fund by $150,000
- Complete the construction/renovation and furnishing of the lower level Research Facility and Archive/Collections storage areas estimated at $100,000
The construction loan has been paid off and funding for the lower level R.D. Pike Research Center has allowed us to complete the construction on the lower level of the Heritage Center. If you would like to contribute toward equipment and furnishings for the Research Center or the BHA Endowment Fund which is needed to provide a constant revenue stream for the operation of the Heritage Center please contact the BHA office at 715-779-5958 or complete a Donation Form on the “Heritage Vision Campaign” page of this website.

The mission of the Bayfield Heritage Association, Inc. is to collect and preserve historic archival materials, photos and related artifacts of the city of Bayfield and the surrounding area in cooperation with other regional historical entities.

Volunteer Appeal -We need YOUR Talents -The Bayfield Heritage Center needs volunteers who can devote an hour or two, or more, a week to assist with activities from baking cookies and making coffee for events to setting up the Heritage Center for programs. We need individuals to greet visitors during our summer season and individuals who would like to work with the collections and archives or help with new and ever changing exhibit construction. The Fountain Garden Park and Apple Shed properties need summer maintenance as does the Heritage Center building. Business office volunteers are needed to assist with mailings, the Courier newsletter publication and if you have computer skills many projects under development could use your help. Our appeal is for individuals who have an interest in preserving the heritage of the greater Bayfield area while having fun working with like minded people to promote our area through publications, events and programs which highlight the history of our beautiful part of the world. Please contact Bill Gover 779-9569, Marilyn Van Sant 779-9777 or the BHA Office 779-5958. You may also email the BHA Office at firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer.
