Welcome to The Elevator Historical Society

Thanks For Visiting!
The first ever US based brick and mortar elevator museum has graciously taken on the challenge to preserve the history of the industry that helped enable cities to build upward and not outward. We hope that you become a member and if you are ever in the area we'd welcome a visit by you. 

We Need You!
How can you help? It's easy we need funding, assistance from volunteers and donations of actual old elevator components. At this time the majority of display items have been donated by a few individuals.
