Joining the Old House Enthusiasts is easy!

The Dubuque Old House Enthusiasts is a charitable organization promoting historic preservation, conservation, education and awareness.

Membership is open to anyone who will support the goals of the organization as stated above. Dues are $15 per individual or $30 per couple annually. Dues are usually collected for the coming year at the June Meeting.

Monthly meetings are held the second Thursday of each month, often featuring a guest speaker, and ending with plenty of time to trade old house restoration tips and stories.

Each year the group sponsors the Annual DubuqueFest Old House Tour to allow community members and visitors the opportunity to enjoy and appreciate a sample of Dubuque's historic treasures, as well as to promote interest in their preservation.

Each year, the tour serves as a fundraiser for area historic places and educational materials. The 2012 Tour is being organized. We need volunteers for the tour. If you are interested, please contact one of the House Tour chair persons on the contact page of the website.

If you own an old house, like old houses, are restoring an older home or building and want to share your experiences and enthusiasm with like-minded folks, this is the group for you.

All you have to do to join is just show up at the next meeting.

If you have any questions, please contact one of our officers or committee chairpersons.

The rewards are abundant and the knowledge gained is endless.
