Become a Guild Member

The HHM (Hower House Museum) Guild was formed in 2016/2017 from the merger of two distinct groups founded in the 1970s, the Friends of Hower House and the Hower House Victorians.

While the current Guild is a smaller group, it continues to mightily support the mission of the Museum through the dedicated involvement of  donors and colunteers who generously contribute their time and talents at the Hower House Museum.

To learn more about the history of our dedicated members and how the HHM Guild was formed, see the History of the Museum Volunteers page.
