Message From the Chairman

The Museum of Hounds & Hunting North America has exciting news! We’ve redesigned the museum website, a venture made possible by a continuing generous contribution of the Flowers Family Foundation. Mark your calendars for the upcoming Huntsmen’s Room induction ceremony from 4 to 5 p.m. on May 28, at Morven Park, followed by the annual Museum reception.

Our newly-designed website provides opportunities for members, guests, and researchers to interact with hunting artifacts, read the history of hounds and hunting, review essays and research papers, and consider educational content and activities. Navigating the website is more intuitive so viewers can expand their knowledge of the sport. The Memorial Reading Room on the new website is a wonderful way to engage with a variety of books, papers, articles, maps and videos that extend understanding of hunting with hounds. The website also includes all inducted Huntsmen’s booklets. Learn how each huntsman made vital impacts to the sport of foxhunting in North America.

The website can now securely process memberships and additional donations online. Or, if you prefer, you can fill out the attached membership form and send it in.

As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, the MHHNA relies on a variety of funding. Every form of support is appreciated; each person who says “yes” to membership adds force to the collective effort to “preserve the rich North American heritage of hunting with hounds, for today and for the future.” We encourage you to join or renew your membership.

We are very excited about this new website, the Huntsmen’s Room induction, and we welcome your feedback. We hope to see you on May 28, 2022!

Nancy G. Bedford
