"…we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.  "

With these words, the signers of the Declaration of Independence joined together to support a cause they fervently believed in. Today, centuries later, the American Independence Museum shares the compelling stories of these and other ordinary people who made extraordinary differences in our town, our state, and our nation.

Your support of the Annual Fund of the American Independence Museum, The 1776 Fund, significantly helps us tell these stories through our events, exhibitions, and programs and we sincerely appreciate your generosity.
