The Mortar and Pestle Society grew out of the “Landmarks Society,” which owned and operated the Museum from 1939 until 2006. The group reorganized in 2009 with a new mission to provide financial support for the Museum from the Society’s endowment. For more information, visit the Mortar & Pestle Society website. To become a member, click here for the application form, or purchase your membership online from The Alexandria Shop.
