The La Porte County Historical Society would like to announce a 50 percent reduction in Individual membership dues from now through the end of the year. Memberships run from January 1st through December 30th each year. Beginning on July 1st, the Individual membership fees are reduced from $15.00 to $7.50 as there are only six months remaining in the calendar year. The membership fees for other membership categories have not been reduced.


Membership benefits include free admission to the La Porte County Historical Society Museum, free admission to Museum events and programs, and the quarterly newsletter “The Oldletter” featuring articles on La Porte County’s unique heritage, along with information on current events, programs, and happenings at the Museum. In addition, membership entitles all members to admission to the six annual La Porte County Historical Society meetings featuring programs and the Historian of the Year awards.


Other levels of membership are available. Sustaining memberships are $25 and besides the benefits of the Individual membership also include a gift shop discount of 10%; Patron memberships are $40 and also include one Historical Society calendar; Lifetime memberships are $200 and also include a Lifetime membership certificate; and a Business/Corporate membership which is $250 and also includes the business’ name on the recognition board in the Museum.


Membership dues support the Historical Society’s mission and the Museum. In part, the Historical Society’s mission is to collect, preserve, and display artifacts related to La Porte County, and to promote historical inquiry and study of the history of Indiana and La Porte County. The La Porte County Historical Society Museum is one of the largest county museums in Indiana, and is a 501(C)3 non-profit organization.


The Museum is located at 2405 Indiana Avenue, La Porte. The re-opening date for the Museum is July 7, 2020, with limited hours, 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. All persons are required to wear a mask while in the Museum, and complete a health questionnaire.
