Join the PHW Membership

Who is a PHW member? 

Architecture, history, environmental awareness, and community-oriented activism are some of the common interests of our membership. PHW members in general have an interest in historic buildings, architecture, preservation, or education about these topics. Many members enjoy volunteering as a docent or decorating for the Holiday House Tour. These passions are also some of the basic components of strong and effective historic preservation.

If these interests resonate with you and you are looking for a group with educational activities and fun social events, PHW might be a good organization for you to join.

What are the benefits of membership to PHW? 

PHW's strength comes from the involvement and participation of people just like you!

Your yearly PHW dues entitle you to receive PHW's quarterly printed newsletter, mailed invitations to PHW's programs, free admission to the Annual Meeting and Memberfest events, and ticket discounts to the Holiday House Tour Preview Party. Members in good standing are entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting and other special membership meetings. All of our activities are often great networking opportunities to find like-minded preservationists, old house enthusiasts, and historians!

The most important benefit to joining PHW is that your dues help us to continue providing preservation assistance to the Winchester area. If you enjoy this access to the network of skilled and knowledgeable preservationists and historians, joining PHW is the best way to show your appreciation and support of our mission.
