Properties such as the Orange Johnson House, the Old Rectory, and other acquisitions, were made through donations from the community, and are being maintained by the society for the benefit of the community and all those who come to visit.
Throughout the last fifty years, the WHS has operated with the help of private contributions, membership dues and Society projects. Since 1994 the WHS has received grants for educational programs and activities from the City of Worthington.
The society has made every effort to maintain the New England atmosphere which has remained a symbol of "Old Worthington's" heritage. See this history of the Worthington Historical Society for additional information.
