We are an all-volunteer organization. The Snyder Estate is owned by The Century House Historical Society. The Estate is located in a Federal and State designated Historic District. Everything you see around you: maintenance of over twenty acres, the care of our buildings and collections, and our outstanding educational programs are all accomplished by volunteers. We have no wealthy benefactors but we do have a bank mortgage, insurance costs, and an array of other expenses. Our income is derived from fund raisers, programs, membership dues, and donations.

There are many ways in which you can help the Society achieve its goals:

  • Become a member!
  • Volunteer: There must be a project that would interest you. We need your talents!
  • Contribute: Your time, your donations, your services.
  • If you no longer need it, think of the Society: tools, computer and photo copying equipment, garden plants. You name it, we probably need it!

Membership categories are:


Individual $  25 annually
Family $  50
Business $250
Lifetime (individual) $500
