Support Our Work

Help us share the history of Ontonagon County by donating. Donations can be designated to the Museum Fund or the Lighthouse Fund.  OCHS offers golden plates to memorialize loved ones or to list your name in history as a sponsor.  The plates are displayed in the entryway to the museum, or at the lighthouse.  Sponsor board plates are $100 each.

We are always in need of volunteers to help operate the museum and lighthouse. You can work on or clean a museum exhibit, help us catalog objects, or be a cashier or guide at the lighthouse. It’s all fun, and it’s what keeps us going! Email us at or call 906-884-6165.
