Message From the Chairman

The Museum of Hounds & Hunting North America has exciting news! We have redesigned the museum website, a venture made possible by a continuing generous contribution of the Flowers Family Foundation.

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 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 on the Join & Donate page. Or, if you prefer, you can print and fill out a 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.

Mark your calendars for the 2023 Annual Art Exhibit and Sale on Saturday, May 27, from 3:00 to 7:00 PM at the Morven Park Mansion. The event includes a festive Museum Reception for Members and guests. Please see the schedule and invitation in News, and for reservations, visit the Join & Donate page.

We hope to see you on May 27, 2023!

Nancy G. Bedford, Chairman
