The East Yuma County Historical Society

EYCHS LogoState Incorporation

The East Yuma County Historical Society (EYCHS), a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, was incorporated with the State of Colorado on July 1, 1969.


The EYCHS was formed with the purpose to bring together those people interested in the history of Eastern Yuma County and the surrounding area and they play an important role in the governorship of the Museum. The EYCHS Board of Directors is elected from the membership and also serves as the Museum Board. As owners of the Collection which is permanently housed at the Museum, they are responsible for cost of acquisition, care of the Collection, exhibition, and similar materials. They raise funds to cover these costs through tours, special events, endowments, gifts, and memberships.
