You Are.

Every donation from members and supporters enables us to advocate for the preservation of the places that represent Rockville’s historic character; create educational programs on the peerless people and events that contribute to Rockville’s evolving identity; and maintain our library and archival collections of Rockville heritage.

 We all benefit from keeping the past a part of our present. Preserving Rockville’s heritage provides current and future generations with knowledge of who and what came before, and enriches our City’s culture, community, and identity.
