Utah has a club to match any interest or hobby. Socialize with friends, family and neighbors who share common interests in one of the state’s many groups and organizations.

The Utah State Historical Society
(USHS) was founded in 1897 by a group of residents who wanted to preserve the state’s rich history and culture as accurately as possible. Society members receive the Utah Historical Quarterly
throughout the year; started in 1928, the publication features articles by some of the country’s top historians and scholars. Membership also brings invitations to special events and activities. There’s no better way to learn about Utah than alongside individuals who share your passion for the past.
