Damascus Heritage Museum

Damascus Heritage Museum

The Damascus Heritage Society was established in 2005 with the mission to preserve the unique agricultural, educational, economic, social, and spiritual history of the Damascus community. Our vision is to serve as the Damascus landmark exhibit center dedicated to the collection, preservation, and maintenance of historical artifacts while becoming an educational resource for schools and providing an inspirational link between the children who are creating history today and their community’s heritage.

With the help of the community through donated services and monetary contributions, we were able to open our museum in November 2009. Our exhibits, which are changed every 4 months, have featured the local fire department, Black History, farms, civic organizations, education and businesses – all of which have been about Damascus and contained artifacts from the community. Since our opening, we have put together 16 exhibits and had more than 7500 visitors to the museum. We sponsor an annual “Tea” in February that brings together local resident of the community. We also sponsor a lecture series on historical topics. The Heritage Society supports and participates in the Damascus Memorial Day Tribute in May, Montgomery County’s Celebration of Heritage Days in June, Celebrate Damascus In July, and the Damascus Community Fair in September.
