What does history mean to you?

Help us reach our goal of $55,000

Perhaps it brings to mind: stories, memories, community, family traditions, a sense of place, leaving a legacy.

With each passing day, month, or year, we have the opportunity to capture history as it is created: to recall and document events and interactions that have shaped who we are in this moment, now – causing us to see the world in new ways.

Your support helps us maintain and expand educational programming, archival capacity, historical and cultural exhibits, online access to resources and much more!

Examples of BHAs Important Work

What a year 2022 has been – both challenging and exhilarating! We’ve had to work hard, but with support from our Bayfield-and-beyond community members like you, we’ve accomplished some great things together. Thank you!

BHA welcomed visitors to our museum all summer long. Coming to us on cruise ships, tour buses, and bicycles from the backyards of Bayfield, visitors filled the museum with activity and laughter.

Hundreds gathered under the Big Top for the premier of BHA’s documentary film, The Bayfield Flood of ‘42. Bringing this story to the screen was a true community effort. It’s an inspiring film, and you can watch it any time online. More than 1,000 of you already have!

Kids young and old have been fascinated by vintage technology, like the pump organ and typewriter, while others spend collective hours hunting for hidden gems in the Bayfield Model Railroad.

Your financial support makes all of this possible.

We eagerly anticipate even more opportunities to connect with you through virtual and inperson events, including the launch of an all-new exhibit in 2023. You can be a part of bringing the history of Bayfield and the surrounding area to life.

Donate easily and securely online. Consider setting up recurring monthly donations.

There are so many ways to give to BHA! Check out the different options.

Thank you for your generosity!

We could not do this without you.
