The Dane County Historical Society was incorporated as an affiliate of the State Historical Society on January 16, 1961. We're a private, non-profit, tax-exempt 501 (c)(3) organization. Our primary mission is education: promoting an awareness of Dane County's rich heritage, thus aiding in its preservation. One hundred percent of our budget goes toward carrying out our mission. We carry out this mission through our programs and publications.

DCHS Has a New Facebook Page!!
As many of you are probably well aware, new media has become a valuable asset to nearly every non-profit organization in recent years. That is why the Dane County Historical Society is excited to have recently launched a Facebook page of our own. Facebook, a popular social media networking website comprised of over 500 million people around the world, has become the common avenue many organizations have turned to due to the ability to cultivate a wider audience.
We envision our Facebook page to be an extension of the website, alerting our followers to the latest news and events offered by the Society and encouraging non-members to become more knowledgeable about what our organization has to offer.
