AASLH Annual Report on Semiquincentennial Planning Now Available

Since 2018, the American Association for State and Local History (AASLH) has published an Annual Report on Semiquincentennial Planning to highlight how the association, national and state commissions, and history organizations are planning for the 250th anniversary of the United States in 2026.

Today, with the anniversary now just two years away, AASLH publishes its seventh Annual Report.

This year’s report includes:

  • An overview of national planning efforts and a message from U.S. Semiquincentennial Commission Chair Rosie Rios.
  • Information about planning at the state level.
  • AASLH’s efforts and resource development over the past year and our plan for the coming year to help your organization prepare.

All history organizations are encouraged to participate in the 250th commemoration, sharing the full sweep of our nation’s history. Your organization can and should connect with initiatives at the national and state levels and use AASLH’s resources to make the most of this once-in-a-generation event to increase interest and investment in your organization.
