Support PCLHS

The Perry County Lutheran Historical Society, which operates the Lutheran Heritage Center and Museum, is a 501(c)3 private, not-for-profit entity. PCLHS raises all the funds necessary for preservation of the log cabins, operations, events, programs and activities. If you are interested in supporting us, please contact the museum at 573-824-6070.  Here are some programs that help support our museum.


Gesellschaft is a program our supporters can use to donate money to our organization on a regular basis.  It is named after the immigration society that was formed in 1838 and came to settle in Perry County.  In that Gesellschaft, people pooled their resources to accomplish their mission.  We do that here at our museum as well.  We rely upon people to pool their resources to help us to carry out our mission of preserving our history.  We hope you would consider being a part of this special group.
