Where Past Meets Present

Support RCHS

RCHS Historic 100

The Rock County Historical Society is mindful of the needs of the community and that businesses do all that they can to improve the quality of life through their philanthropy. With this in mind, the Historic 100 group was created. For a modest donation ($500), businesses can support the growth of the RCHS and its campus, knowing that their brand is being promoted and their employees and clients are given the opportunity to experience our history campus.
