Once we have your email, you'll receive an "invitation" from the BHS to join the portal. This is where you set up your login information: username/password etc.


Send an email request if you need help and our technical team will get back with you.

New and exciting plans are in the works for the Beacon Historical Society.  In order to find a new home, set up a museum, improve our website, and set up fun community events, we need more members and volunteers to help.


Mark Lucas will be heading up the Membership Committee for 2016. The first order of business is setting up booths at various events and locations through the city of Beacon to educate the public on what the Beacon Historical Society does for the community and encourage membership. We need members to volunteer to help run these booths.  If you are interested in joining our committee and helping, please send an email to the Beacon Historical Society or stop in and see us!
