Become a Member

Joining the Wappingers Historical Society is easy. To pay by credit card, click on the "Join Now - Credit Card Payment" button below and select the type of membership that you want from the dropdown menu. Then click "next" to provide your contact information. Finish the "checkout" process and you are done.


We are an active, thriving organization which holds special events for members throughout the year.  Such activities are the Potluck Picnic in July, the Ice Cream Social in August and the Holiday Party in December.  Members are free at all speaker events and receive a 10% discount in our Bookstore.  Members will receive the quarterly publication of The Homestead Chronicle, our newsletter.  We encourage members, as well as non-members, to volunteer as docents or greeters with our tours of the Homestead, writers or researchers for the newsletter, archivists, or helpers at our events. No special skills are needed, just the desire to become part of this growing organization. Join today and join the fun!


If you prefer to pay by check, or in person by cash, that's fine too.  Just click on the "Membership Application Form" button below, print out the form and mail the completed form in with your check or call us at 845-632-1281 to arrange a good time to bring the form and your payment to the Mesier Homestead in person. You do not need to fill in the Membership form if you are selecting the Credit Card option for payment. Please do not send cash in the mail.

As soon as we process your application, we'll send you a "welcome kit" so that you can maximize your enjoyment of your membership. 

We do not share any information you provide to us to anyone for any reason.

If you have any questions at all on membership, please contact us at 845-632-1281 or click on the "email us" button below.
