Staff and Board of Directors

All staff and directors are unpaid volunteers

The Warren County Historical Society (WCHS) Board of Directors is responsible for the financial stewardship, protection and preservation of the Society. Together with a corps of volunteers and individual funders, we’re working to grow membership, educate our community, aid researchers, and preserve the work of generations of Warren Countians.

Office Administrator Jan Sutherland and Curator Susie Busekrus run our office and Museum operations. 

The Board meets monthly, usually on the third Thursday evening of each month. Meetings are open to the public and are usually held at the Museum.
