Castle on Fort Ritchie

Dear Friends, 

What an auspicious year 2023 was for the Ritchie History Museum!

  • We received 501(c)(3) designation in January—officially becoming a nonprofit!


  • We were special guests at the award ceremony when The US Holocaust Memorial Museum presented the Ritchie Boys its Elie Wiesel Award with General Mark Milley delivering the keynote address.

4. Hire much needed staff to assist in accomplishing the above goals.

5. Plan for future expansion of the museum.

These five goals all promote our mission to protect, preserve, and educate on the rich history of Fort Ritchie.
