The Collinsport Historical Society is creating mystery, intrigue and a podcast.

Since 2012, The Collinsport Historical Society has been the premiere venue to celebrate the 53-year phenomenon of Dark Shadows. We were named “Best Website” and “Best Writer” by The Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Awards in 2012 and 2017, respectively. Our podcast has been downloaded more than 50,000 times, and The Collinsport Historical Society website has tallied more than 2.6 million visits. We’ve published three books on cult classic horror movies, 100 podcast episodes, and have made thousands of connections on Facebook while providing scholarly review of the Dark Shadows phenomenon and vibrant communications for fans new and old.

Throughout its existence, The Collinsport Historical Society has been entirely self-financed. Your monthly pledge keeps this vibrant communications channel alive – and keeps its founder out of the poorhouse. In return, we’ll offer you some gifts. You can’t buy these — and we’re not selling. You support will go toward covering the costs of producing and hosting the podcast, and will allow us to pay our writers for their work.
Tiers

$5 or more per month

When you're a werewolf it's important to pay close attention to the calendar. Relieve some of your scheduling anxiety by receiving The Collinsport Historical Society Podcast a week before it goes public!


Victoria Winters

You will also get early access to The Collinsport Historical Society Podcast, receiving a download link one week before it goes public.

Angelique Bouchard

Angelique Bouchard has a commitment to  The Collinsport Historical Society that cannot be broken. This tier receives the same rewards as Willie Loomis and Quentin Collins, and also a rare prize:

Printed on glossy card stock and packaged with a set of anaglyph glasses, this set showcases the first year of Dark Shadows in all it's black and white glory.  Includes one set of 3D glasses.  These are individually made pieces and not available for sale. 

Barnabas Collins
$75 or more per month

Barnabas Collins has taken a sacred vow to defend the mission of The Collinsport Historical Society. Consequently, he has access to a sampling of the impossible relics in our collection. 


 * A complete set of trading cards never produced for 1970's House of Dark Shadows. The set features 72 full-color cards plus a black and white "chase" set of nine "behind the scenes" cards.  These are individually made pieces and not available for sale.
