Dues Payment & Donations
Help us grow! The Muskegon Railroad Historical Society is a registered 501c3 corporation with papers filed with the State of Michigan. We are always graciously looking for donations to our organization. Cash, will, trust and other monetary donations can be arranged by contacting the Society through the website or by mailing us at MRHS 561 W. Western Ave. Muskegon MI 49440

Donations of historical artifacts or documents can be brought to the club during normal hours or contact the Society and we can arrange a special time. We do take donations of model trains and model railroad supplies but donation of these types of these items should be prearranged with the Society.

All donations are tax-deductable and you will receive a form for use in filing for your income tax.

We unfortunately are unable to "appraise" the value of any historical or model railroad related items. We can put you in contact with businesses or individuals that can do legal appraisals.
