To the Clinton County History Center in Wilmington, Ohio
#GivingTuesday is Tuesday, December 1, 2020. GivingTuesday is an opportunity for people around the world to use their individual power of generosity to remain connected and support their communities.
The Clinton County History Center needs YOUR help this season due to the impacts COVID19 has had on our ability to host events, programs, school tours, and more. Fun fact! The History Center does not receive outside funding from our city or county to maintain operations. We rely solely on memberships, donations, tours, ticketed events, and gift shop sales to continue our mission of preserving our community’s past for present and future generations. As a 501(c)3 non-profit, your financial support is 100% tax deductible.

The Clinton County History Center
Chartered in 1948, the Clinton County Historical Society purchased its museum home in 1955. This site is on the National Register of Historic Places as the home of Brigadier General James W. Denver (for whom Denver, Colorado was named). This History Center is a multi-function facility operated by the Clinton County Historical and Genealogical Societies. The Center includes a touring museum with exhibits and special displays; research library; manuscript, photographic and reference archives; textile and artifact repository; conference center for meetings and educational programs; and serves as the business office for the History Center.
