We are Bursting at the Seams

We are bursting at the seams!

The Royal Oak Historical Society is a private organization funded solely by donations and run by volunteers. We collect, display, and preserve information and objects of Royal Oak's past for current and future generations. We have no monetary affiliation with the City of Royal Oak.

Our collection of Royal Oak History has grown tenfold since we acquired the Northwood Fire Station as our permanent museum. Unfortunately, due to a shortage of room in the museum, many items and any future pieces we receive have to be stored off-site. Consequently, we would like to erect a shed behind the museum to house the non-essential items such as those we use for exhibits, shows, displays, and the annual Car Show.  
Our goal of $9000.00 will allow us to erect a "Tuff Shed" storage unit. Tuff Shed makes quality sheds and are also aesthetically appealing. This project will be funded solely through your GoFundMe donations. Any amount you can donate will help us to accomplish this goal. A permanent plaque will be installed on the shed with a list of all the donors who contributed.

Thank you in advance for your contribution.
