Established in 1980, the Heritage League is a non-profit, membership organization representing museums and agencies dedicated to the preservation of our cultural heritage.
The League is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors composed of fifteen institutional and individual representatives involved in historical agencies in and around Kansas City. The Heritage League sponsors workshops to improve professional practices in area agencies, public events to heighten community awareness of historical agencies and issues affecting them, and social events to provide networking opportunities among those working in area organizations.
From the beginning, the League’s purpose has been multi-faceted:
1) to promote greater understanding and public recognition of the history and the cultural development of the Greater Kansas City region;
2) to enhance public awareness of the excellent history resources held by the Greater Kansas City museums, archives, and preservation groups;
3) to insure the preservation of the historical resources through advocacy, arbitration, and action;
4) to facilitate communication and cooperation among the historical agencies in the Greater Kansas City area;
5) to promote professionalism and the use of professional standards in the operation of the Greater Kansas City area historical agencies.*
The Heritage League’s membership is composed of institutions and individuals living and working in the eight-county region surrounding Greater Kansas City. Over 100 museums, archives, historical societies, historic sites, and other agencies dedicated to the preservation of the community’s cultural heritage can be found within the geographic region and are represented in the membership of the Heritage League; other members are individual staff members or volunteers in the community interested in history and preservation.
