Our work is to preserve and to energize history with new activities. Membership is a vital element in the ongoing effort to maintain the buildings and grounds of this very special place and to engage our community within that context. Join us at Historic Park-McCullough.
The Association is the governing body of the Park-McCullough House. In conjunction with the Board of Trustee's, the members of the association are responsible for the well-being of the house. Additionally, Members are the lifeblood of the house, largely responsible for its well-being today.
However, membership isn't without it's benefits. A regular membership includes admission to tours, and admission to membership annual meetings and member receptions.

Thanks to continuing support from both Members and Annual Fund donors, Park-McCullough is gearing up for a busy season. 2017 Memberships made it possible for PM to invest in renewable energy. Now, electricity will be supplied to the house via a community solar project, which will not only lower expenses, but increase sustainability. Your 2018 Membership will support three ongoing projects: the removal of invasive species growing on the property, continuing the care and preservation for our beautiful trees, and the painting of the north side of the mansion. Membership funds and a grant from the Fund for North Bennington will help finance the refinishing of the carriage barn floors! To track the progress of these projects please visit our website, subscribe to our newsletter and like us on Facebook.
The 2018 Croquet season will start Thursday, June 14th. By signing up for croquet, you not only enjoy playing on the lawns (with a cash bar on the verandah), but you also receive Membership benefits.
Please contact the house for questions and/or private event reservations.
We are deeply grateful for your continued support. See you this summer!
