Although many people confuse the Monroe County Historical Museum and the Monroe County Historical Society as though they were one in the same, they are actually separate organizations, each with its own function.

The Museum is part of county government and therefore is responsible to the Monroe County Board of Commissioners and the Chief Administrator of Monroe County. Our staff members are county employees, and our operating budget is set by the Board of Commissioners, who also appoint the members of our citizen’s advisory and policy board, the Monroe County Historical Commission.

The Historical Society is a private, tax-exempt, 501c3 organization that originally established the Museum and ran it for many years before turning it over to the county. The Society still functions as a major source of funding for the Museum beyond its limited operating budget, but there are many other projects the Society also funds.
