The Historical Society of Michigan (HSM) is the state’s oldest cultural organization, founded in 1828 by territorial governor Lewis Cass and explorer Henry Schoolcraft.

HSM is not collection based and has no museum or archives.
HSM is an educational non-profit organization and relies on membership, donations, grants and earned income for its revenue to operate. The Society receives no funding from any level of state government.
