By becoming a member of the Winters Heritage House Museum, you help to support the preservation of Elizabethtown’s history in many ways. In short, you immediately become an active part of this preservation effort.
The Seibert Genealogy Library and Research Center maintains deeds, maps, images, and records from the founding of the town through to modern times. The log buildings that house the museum were built in the 1760s, by two different immigrating cultures, when this area was the frontier of the American colonies. The activities within maintain the skills and knowledge of this bygone era and way of life. It is our mission to preserve and share this history and, by doing so, build skills that support the Elizabethtown community.
We realize people become museum members because they love history, wish to see it preserved and want others to be able to learn about our community. Benefits are secondary to this. However, please note the benefits associated with the various levels of giving, and we hope you will take advantage of them. Click here for a Member Registration Form.

Commemorative Mounted Nogging Brick- The most eastern portion of the museum was once a one-room shop, circa 1860, built using “nogging” construction; a method where stout timbers are used to frame the structure, and the gaps are then filled with brick. Sadly, the builders opted for a log foundation, which 150 years later, had disintegrated. Several walls were saved, but others were re-built. We still hold a collection of these early bricks. A limited number have been varnished, mounted, and serve as excellent book ends or conversation items.
