The Historic Indian Agency house is a privately-owned nonprofit historic site which receives no fiscal support from the state or federal government. Our capacity to carry out preservation and education, as well as simply keep the lights on, relies heavily on the generosity of friends like you each year. Together with you, we are privileged to steward one of the Midwest’s most history-rich sites, along with the essential story it relays. We carefully and economically steward every penny of the resources we have available in order to make the fullest impact in serving the community. Your generosity, which keeps our mission moving forward, is sincerely appreciated.
