Honoring Our Past,

Building Our Future

The Clinton Lake Historical Society has launched a $240,000 capital campaign fund drive to increase the museum's footprint so it can house its ever growing collections and provide accessible facilities. The non-profit organization is looking for support from the community to make this possible.

The proposed building expansion will add another 1,100 square feet to the current footprint.

As the museum continues to look for ways to raise $240,000, the board of directors is accumulating a list of naming area rights and exhibit sponsorships available to individuals, businesses, organizations or corporate donors. The board is also searching opportunities for matching grants.

Contributions can be made through the online DONATE NOW button or via a check made payable to the Clinton Lake Historical Society.


Any donation, no matter how large or small, makes a significant impact on the preservation of local history and the assurance the museum can continue to function for generations to come. Please help in any way that you can.

The Clinton Lake Historical Society is recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)3 publicly supported organization. Contributions are tax deductible as allowed by law.


The museum is run by an all-volunteer staff. The Clinton Lake Historical Society Board of Directors along with members and friends of the museum graciously donate time to help with all operational needs including exhibits, accessioning, office support, janitorial duties, outdoor groundskeeping and hosting events. If you would like to volunteer, please reach out via phone or email. We always need volunteers!

  • $10 (Individual)
