Special Projects

The Surveyors Historical Society created a Special Projects Fund as part of its mission of preserving historical surveying instruments, artifacts, records, and memorabilia, and honoring historical surveying points and the surveyors who have made significant contributions to the profession.

Proceeds from the Annual Raffle and Auction held during Rendezvous each year benefit the Special Project Fund.
