Fundraising

Thank you to everyone who has donated to the Ward County Historical Society. Your donations helped us rebuild the Pioneer Village after the 2011 flood. The restoration is now complete, however, Ward County Historical Society needs your continued support for new projects and for the maintenance of the Pioneer Village. In addition, we are now in the biggest battle of WCHS history. The North Dakota State Fair board has decided to evict the Pioneer Village from the property they have inhabited since 1952. Please help us remain on the Fairgrounds. Make checks out to Ward County Historical Society and mail them to the address listed below.  Any donation you can give are greatly appreciated by the WCHS board. Thank you!
