About Us

Connecting the past with the present and the future.

The above is the vision of the Burnet County Heritage Society. 
Our mission is to preserve and promote Burnet County history.
We are caretakers of Fort Croghan and the museum. Our regular year is from April to October and we also schedule tours. We are a volunteer group with a passion for history and for sharing that history with the next generation.


When we meet

BCHS Monthly Meeting

The Burnet County Heritage Society meets once a month on the 2nd Tuesday at 2pm on the fort grounds or the library meeting room. Occasionally, we will meet in other historical locations around town. We keep our meetings to an hour and cover the business details of running a non-profit and completely volunteer organization.

We are always looking for people who love history, who love sharing our history with others, who want to help protect our treasures for future generations, or who just want to keep a hand in and help out here and there.

You are always welcome!
