Your History. Your Community.

One whiff of the air escaping the Ames-Florida-Stork 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 Rockford's Industries of the 1900's , or run events like Rocktoberfest 2021 and 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. Learn about our past residents that served our county in war or helped form our community through the "Meet the People" events. 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 $30 donation includes a free individual membership, or a $50 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 $10,000 to support programs at the Stork House and make necessary repairs to the windows. Some of these windows date back to 1910 and need careful restoration to preserve them.  Join us in the celebration!
