On Saturday, October 6th, The Historical Society hosted dinner at the historical Overland Inn in McCutchenville!  Dinner, provided by Special Occasions, and served by board members, was excellent and there was so much food that many ended up taking some home!  Each diner had a choice of various pieces of pie or cake for desert.  Entertainment was violin music played by Elise Lortz. It was a wonderful evening!

Estate Planning

March 13th, 2015 Posted in Uncategorized | No Comments »


If you are like most of the people past
the age of 40, you’ve had some thought about estate planning. Some benefits
from your estate planning are the following: it preserves the value of your estate, it minimizes estate taxes, and
it can truly benefit your favorite charity.

The Wyandot County Archaeological &
Historical Society (WCA&HS) is a 501-C3 tax-exempt organization, so all gifts
are tax deductible. The WCA&HS has an endowment fund from which we use the interest for the operation of the Society.
In addition, your donation can be designated for the operation and
maintenance of a specific facility
(i.e. Museum, School House, or
Overland Inn/Anderson Building).
By your giving, you can feel assured that the WCA&HS will be preserved for future generations.

We hope that the WCA&HS is one of
your favorite charities and remembered during your estate planning.

Thank You in Advance
The Members of the
Board of Directors
