Your History. Your Community.

One whiff of the air escaping the AFS House brings back memories of Grandma's house. The attic. The treasures. The warm coziness of family and simpler times. Join us as we bring the past to life; as we present public programs on such topics as the Rockford Lynching of 1858, or run events like the 2018 and 2019 Privy Digs.  Yes, we dug up where the outhouses used to be!  Join us as we provide opportunities for school children to experience - not just read about - our history, about how Rockford was founded and what impact the first mill had in establishing our community. Join us as we celebrate Rockford on Memorial Day and Crow River Christmas, in ways that bring us back to the celebration of community.  Join us and celebrate our history.

A $35 donation includes a free individual membership, or a $70 donation includes a family membership.  Be to include your contact information so we can forward your membership benefits to you.

Our goal this year is to raise $2500 to support our programs and the Stork House.  Joine us in the celebration!
