Become a Friend of Old Fort Western!
Old Fort Western is pleased to offer membership opportunities to all interested parties through its Friends of Old Fort Western program. Friends receive unlimited free admission, are sent the Fort's quarterly newsletter by mail, and earn discounts in the Fort's gift shop. Memberships renew annually. Friends may choose to join at one of the following levels:
- Beverly Hewins Society: $25.00 to $99.00
Ms. Hewins expressed her friendship by helping to form the first board of trustees in 1958 and then took the lead in building the Fort's collections.
- Robert Hotelling Society: $100.00 to $299.00
Robert's vision during the 1980s of a restored Fort Western in a new City Center complex was largely responsible for the historic and support facilities that make possible all we do today.
- Mary Maher McCarthy Society: $300.00 to $499.00
Mary was the best of Friends as the City of Augusta celebrated its bicentennial in 1997 and then when Fort Western marked its 250th anniversary in 2004.
- Gannett Society: $500.00 to $999.00
William Howard Gannett and Guy Patterson Gannett used their own funds to restore Fort Western at a time when historic preservation was a new idea and thus, in the spirit of true friendship, gave us all a gift of lasting importance.
