We invite anyone with an interest in Fentress County History or Genealogy to become a member of the Fentress County Historical Society.

We publish a newsletter four times a year for members and maintain an email list to communicate new and upcoming events for local and out-of-county members.

Membership is January-December, but each new membership entitles the member to four issues of the newsletter. (Example: A person who joins in August will receive the Spring and Summer issues as back copies, and the Fall and Winter issues on their schedule. She will receive a notice of membership renewal as usual in November for dues for the next year beginning in January.) Our dues are low, but may be increased as necessary.

We appreciate the generosity of our Supporting Members.
