Building our Futures
The Berkeley County Historical Society’s primary mission is to preserve and perpetuate the history of Berkeley County. Part and parcel with the preservation, we purchased a building completely dedicated to the storage and cataloging of the holdings of BCHS. We continue to accept donations of historic items to the collections as well as negotiating the return to Berkeley County of items that have been handed down through families and donated to other preservation societies outside the region.
A goal set in 2011 is to streamline and bring up to date the donation of items procedure as well as how they are cataloged in the system. If you have an item you would like to donate to the Society’s collection, please contact us by phone or email to begin the process. We look forward to working with you.
The Berkeley County Historical Society, a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization, sustained by its memberships and donations. While the recent recession has reduced local and state support we continue to seek grant funding that will aide us in continuing our mission. If you would like to help beyond your yearly membership, we would be extremely grateful.
