Through your membership in the Historical Society of Baltimore County, you make a significant contribution to the success of our mission. This year HSBC is lowering the membership rate and expanding the membership options as summarized below. In addition to the value you as a member bring to the Society, the benefits returned to you are many. Individual and Household ( 2 adults + resident children) memberships will enjoy:

  • Free unlimited admission to the History Resource Center.
  • 10% discount on Society publications and all purchases.
  • Society Newsletter delivered to your home bi-monthly.
  • Society public history journal, History Trails, delivered.
  • Discounts on staff-conducted research.
  • Free or discount admission to Society sponsored events, exhibits, and lectures.
  • The chance to meet and connect with other individuals interested in the history of Baltimore County.
             History Lover’s Individual Memberships will include all of the above benefits plus access to the Greater Baltimore History Alliance and provide two free admissions to Alliance institutions.
             Student/Teacher memberships will only include only digital copies of our History Trails, Newsletter and other notices via email. Current student or teacher ID may be requested prior to      completion of the enrollment process.
We hope that returning members will renew at our previous rate during our membership price transition. ( Individual  + $25)
