Historical Citizens Association

Membership Information

Come join us at an event! The best way to learn about us is to attend a reenactment or historical occasion as a guest. E-mail us to request a guest spot at our next event and take the first step toward joining our organization. We have extra costumes to loan to most of our guests, so don't worry if you don't have period-appropriate clothing. Once you decide to join Historical Citizens Association (HCA), our Member Liaison can walk you through the simple application process. Dues are payable upon your acceptance as an HCA member.
