Become a Chieftains Member

Memberships keep the lights on and the collections protected against decay. Most foundations and federal dollars do not fund operating expenses. Your Chieftains Museum/Major Ridge Home membership will help to keep our doors open. We are excited to look towards 2019 as we commemorate the 200th anniversary of Major Ridge coming to the house that is Chieftains Museum. For this anniversary, we have planned a dynamic and exciting calendar of events and programs for our community.

We encourage you to be the first to take part in our 2019 events by becoming part of our Step Up! membership campaign. Each member of the museum is so important to the preservation of this non-profit National Historic Landmark and the fulfillment of our mission that we urge you to Step Up! by renewing your membership at a higher level for 2019. Your increased support will not only help us mark our 200th anniversary but will demonstrate the importance of Chieftains Museum and our history to the rest of the community.

The membership brochure can be found below and will provide you with information about our Step Up! Campaign for 2019 and our membership benefits. In addition, you are also invited to our “Night at the  Museum” membership party to take place at the museum the evening of Friday, November 9th from 7:00-9:00pm. We encourage you to not only attend the party to renew your membership for 2019, but to invite others that might be interested in becoming a member to attend with you and begin their journey as a member of the museum.
