It’s All About The Base
Support all that we have to offer in the best way possible — become a Blairstown Museum Sustaining Member! Since 2015, the Blairstown Museum has become a cultural anchor in the community. We continue to be a trailblazer in our approach to community engagement, and in recognizing our role in preserving and showcasing those aspects which define our community on many levels.
Becoming a Sustaining Member is an easy way to increase the power of your support by providing critical funding required for us to continue our extraordinary exhibitions, preservation projects, and education programs that bring our mission – historic preservation – to life.
Sustaining Members receive one FREE JOHN INSLEY BLAIR COMMEMORATIVE MEDAL, commensurate with their membership level; free enrollment in the Time Travelers program sponsored by the Missouri Historical Society; and 5% on (most) souvenir shop purchases, programs, and tours.
Time Travelers originated in 1998 when the Missouri Historical Society established the program to enable members of historical institutions to receive exclusive benefits and privileges at museums and historical sites nationwide. Currently, the Time Travelers program includes over 300 organizations in more than 40 states across the country. Blairstown Museum members are automatically enrolled in the program for free.
On Saturday, June 9, 2018, the Blairstown Museum unveiled the John Insley Blair / Blair Academy 170th Anniversary Commemorative Medal. The medals, available in Brass, Copper, and Silver, were produced by Minter Daniel Carr of the Moonlight Mint, Medal Specialist John Dean, Project Publisher Dave Hayes, and Photographer Christine Oleszek in collaboration with the Blairstown Museum.
Special Sets containing Aluminum, Brass, Copper, Indium, Nickle, Niobium, and Silver medals were gifted to Blair Academy and the Township of Blairstown. The striking of these medals is a monumental achievement for our organization, as we continue to pursue local, state and national recognition of Mr. Blair’s achievements and contributions.
— And now you can receive your very own collectible JOHN INSLEY BLAIR COMMEMORATIVE MEDAL as our gift to you for becoming a Blairstown Museum Sustaining Member. Annual Memberships begins at only $49.95! Additional medals are available for purchase at the Blairstown Museum.
