With the assistance of our community through donated services and monetary contributions, the Damascus Heritage Society was able to open its museum in November 2009.
The museum exhibits 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 residents 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.
