History Starts with You!

History is three-fold. It involves preserving the past, embracing the present, and shaping the future. At the Lorain Historical Society, we see You in every phase.

Your generous support of our efforts has helped us emerge as a strong community leader—one that collaborates with others about the past, present, and future of the City of Lorain. A collective commitment to achieve our fundraising goals from dedicated donors like Youwill go a long way in furthering our mission.

2023 Annual Fund

The impact YOU have had on our organization cannot be minimized. Without the tremendous response from our growing group of community supporters, we couldn’t have weathered the economic storm that challenged us throughout the COVID pandemic.


A collective commitment to achieve our fundraising goals from dedicated donors like YOU will go a long way in furthering our mission. Nothing we have accomplished over the last 40+ years has been done alone.

"For over 40 years the Lorain Historical Society has served the community in Lorain through preservation, education and collaboration. Our  vision for the future aims to engage young and old alike in our shared history, where people are inspired to work together to create a vibrant city that is economically strong and a great place to live. The museum at the Carnegie Center and the artifacts at the Moore House tell the story of Lorain—a city rich because of its diversity and strong through its determination and resilience. Your donations to the Lorain Historical Society help us to accomplish this mission through educational programming, preserving historic archives and artifacts, and maintaining two historic properties. We thank you for your partnership and support."
