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.

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!
