The Speakeasy directly supports the Historical Society’s commitment to inspire lasting connections to the past through a modern approach of preserving and sharing history today and in the future.

Each year it takes $300,000 for BECHS to be the safekeepers of our local history. The goal for this single event is to raise $50,000 to safeguard our 20,000+ collection items; provide inspiration with hands-on history activities for kids; and to celebrate and remember thousands of local stories.

Together we are sharing stories AND preserving the legacy of our county. 

So, grab your best guy or doll and join us at the Speakeasy!
