Remember when you visited the Woodruff-Fontaine House Museum for a tour or fundraising event and after having a great time, wondered, "How can I be more involved here?"  If you have a passion for antiquities and a heart for preservation, you should consider a membership to the APTA Memphis Chapter.  Our 2018-2019 membership drive is underway!

Your support and participation are vital to the success of our mission.  Your membership provides many benefits, including free admission to the Woodruff-Fontaine House, as well as thirteen other historic APTA properties throughout the state, including Belle Meade Plantation in Nashville and Ramsey House Plantation in Knoxville.  You will receive exclusive member perks at our major events, free admission to our monthly First Friday exhibit openings, our online newsletter, a 10 percent discount in the Museum Shop and much more!  Most importantly, YOU are helping to preserve a beautiful and valuable part of Memphis history.

On June 21, from 5pm-8pm, we will be hosting a Preview of the Museum Year.  Stroll the halls as we share a sneak peek of our upcoming exhibition season by showcasing each room staged with a glimpse of what our museum collection offers throughout the year.  Light refreshments will be served and our staff, board members and volunteers will be on hand to answer questions and share their love for the Woodruff-Fontaine House.

Admission for this special event is just $15.00.  Current APTA Members get in FREE and new members can apply the $15.00 admission towards their 2018-2019 membership dues, starting at just $30.00 annually.  You can also join online.  Our membership year is July 1, 2018 - June 30, 2019.

We encourage you to stay connected to the website and social media where we post upcoming events, and share photos of our currents exhibits and events throughout the year.  If you would be interested in volunteer opportunities such as research, marketing, tours, gardening, curating and archiving, please contact us to share your interest or talent in any of these areas.

On behalf of the Board, the Association and our entire membership, we thank you for your support!
